People cheer as man is burned to death at West Hollywood Halloween Carnival. I don’t know who the bigger idiots are. The crowd of dumb fucks cheering and dancing like a bunch of idiots while a man is set on fire to his death. Or the man who set himself on fire by lighting a cigarette while wearing a costume made out of straw.
Festival-goers can be seen on a video dancing to electronic music and cheering as a man becomes engulfed in flames during West Hollywood’s annual Halloween carnival.
Gilbert Estrada, 51, later died. The video posted on YouTube shows him lying unresponsive after the fire was extinguished. Detectives say it appears Estrada may have accidentally started the fire while trying to light a cigarette.
As Estrada flails, some bystanders can be heard cheering. Others help put out the flames. One bystander recorded the scene with a cellphone camera and posted it on the video website.
