Has anyone heard? Wayne posted this on Facebook:

A statement from Wayne:

Monday while appearing on a TV show in the Dominican Republic, the TV host took a handful of Aqua De Florida, ignited it and intentionally dropped it on my head, setting me on fire.

I was not aware he was going to do this. This was not a stunt or part of an act - this was a criminal attack.

The fast actions of the rest of our Curiosidades team saved my life. The fire was put out and I was rushed to the emergency room. I have bad burns on my head, face, neck and right hand.

I am in pain, but am recovering. I will update you on the situation when I can.

Best Wishes to Wayne for a speedy (and full) recovery.

Why would anyone do such a thing? It defies reason.

What is Aqua De Florida? Is this it?

http://www.shamansmarket.com/us-agua-de-......tle.html

Or is Agua de Florida the name of something flamable used in pyrotechnics?

Either way Wayne is burned pretty badly for no reason at all (as if there could be a reason for such a thing).

That's all we know right now. Some pictures have been posted on his facebook account of him being burned. Very tragic to say the least. More info will be released when they get the time, but I've also heard that the host is being charged with attempted murder. I too would like to get the whole story, but I'm more concerned about Wayne's health right now, and of course his wife who is obviously also having a tough time.

This would be a good time to show our support by sending him our best wishes, and prayers on his facebook page.

To those who don't know what Agua De Florida is, this is what it is. This might also give us a motive to why the host did what he did. cleansing sprays

Mary,

Rather than re-post them here, you can see more details on this thread:
http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......m=218&31

Apparently he was on a television show in the Dominican Republic and was intentionally set on fire by the host, Franklin Barazarte, along with Domingo Bautista, the host of another show who was appearing as well. It was indicated by Barazarte & Bautista that it was "divine justice" for the Voodoo and Witchcraft practices of the Curiosidades team (BJ Bueno, Wayne Houchin & Fran Houchin) who all appeared on the show.

Oh sorry...ALLEGEDLY...

I don't know about you all, but that does not look too "alleged" to me!

And you all wonder why blind faith is dangerous?

"Divine Justice" for Magic tricks... Smile

Ignorant and pious. Flammable. No joke. Stupid retards.

There should have been a beat down.

Really.

Hope Wayne is not scarred for life. At least physically.

This stuff could happen in this country. I remember a restaurant gig of mine was protested by members of a particular church. They had thousands of members in my area. I think the reason that it doesn't happen more is because the perpetrator is held accountable.

I wish Wayne a total and speedy recovery. I hope the criminals are held accountable for their actions.

Me too. Someone on another thread said good luck getting justice in the Dominican. But I can't believe that you can just light someones head on fire on television without any repercussions. That can't be right? Danny Kazam says earlier in this thread that he heard the host is being charged with attempted murder, I hope that's the case. This is absolutely unbelieveable.

What is being raised here is very disturbing. As Alan Munro mentions, it could happen here as well. Religious fundamentalism comes in all faiths ... and stage magicians get attacked for practicing voodoo??? I remember a clip with David Blaine in Haiti, having to convince spectators that he was doing entertainment magic ... that he was not really able to read their minds. For a moment, you could hear some fear in David Blaine's voice! And we have Alan Munro in the US having his gig protested by a local church (I'm guessing its 'Christian').

Yes we should follow this case as it concerns all magicians. Lynn

Why hasn't this hit the American news yet????? Why are no newspapers covering this story. I can't find anything about this other than from magicians or magic website blogs.
