In what appears to be a dramatic and shocking incident, an unnamed 18-year-old man allegedly set himself on fire in front of the American embassy in Østerbro, Copenhagen.
Reports suggest that he was conscious while doing so, and the fire was eventually put out by emergency services.
Despite the severity of the incident, the man is still alive and recovering in hospital.
Emergency Services Called to the Scene
According to reports, the emergency services were called to the scene by the embassy itself, and both ambulance and fire services were in attendance.
When they arrived, the man was on fire and conscious, and he was subsequently put out and taken to hospital for treatment.
Investigations Are Ongoing
The police have not yet released details surrounding the incident or the man’s identity, and it is not yet clear what motivated the man to set himself alight.
However, the police have confirmed that the man has not been charged with any immediate offence.
Investigations are ongoing, and more details are expected to emerge in due course.
It is not yet clear what led the man to take such a drastic and dangerous course of action, and the incident has raised concerns about mental health issues and the need for greater support in this area.
While investigations are ongoing, it is important to remember that incidents like this can have a profound impact on the individual and their loved ones, and it is essential that they are treated with sensitivity and care.
We hope that the man makes a full recovery and that he receives the support he needs to overcome any underlying issues he may be facing.
