Firesuspension? Suicidefire?

This “definitely don’t try this at home” suspension was planned and executed by PSFitz (originator of the idea and victim — he has a forum on his IAM page on the subject as well), Jared of Onetribe Organics, and Cameron from Enigma Studios in Richmond, VA, and a stunt guy named Jake.

They write, “The event involved a two point suspension during which Paul was set on fire. A stunt specialist was an integral part of the planning and execution of this event and every precaution was taken to ensure that everyone involved remained safe. This included spraying the entire structure with fire suppressant chemicals, everyone involved having protection from the fire, Paul wearing a great deal of protection both chemically and physically (the underlayers were frozen), and several individuals with water and Hollywood-grade fire suppressant extinguishers. The burn itself lasted approximately twenty to twenty-five seconds, after which Paul said he was starting to warm up and we proceeded to ‘put him out’ in a rockstar explosion of CO2 and water.”
