Footage has surfaced after last week’s debacle in Greece, where a Syrian refugee immigrant set himself on fire after being denied legal status in the county.
Reportedly, the young migrant had applied to asylum in the country of Greece, where he got to by boat. His asylum case was denied. At the time, we don’t know why his case was denied or if he had ties to any unsavory groups in Syria.
According to police, the man had rubbed a flammable liquid all over his body and set himself on fire right in the middle of the street.
The illegal immigrant who did it ended up in the hospital with burns covering 88% of his body, but he is alive and in serious condition. Unfortunately, the poor officer who had to be on duty helping him also received burns on his hands and face, but they are not critical, police say.
