Last night, a man walked through a residential area in Eindhoven on fire. Frightened local residents saw him walk about five hundred meters around the neighborhood at 10 p.m. before he collapsed. They took care of men until the ambulance came. The man was taken to hospital and died there.

The police say to Omroep Brabant that the man has set himself on fire.

The man was first seen burning near an apartment building. From there he walked into the neighborhood through a park. At one point he went inside a house, where he came out a little later. In addition to the ambulance, a trauma helicopter also deployed to the neighborhood.

It is not known how many people saw the man walking, but the police offer all of them victim assistance.
