Man Sets Himself on Fire then Runs into Train

Ever have a day when you feel like you've been set on fire and hit by a train?The key word, of course, is "feel." Because as one Kamloops, B.C. man recently learned, there's a big difference between a crappy day and actually having these two things happen to you in the span of a few hours.

As the Canadian Press reports, an inebriated 51-year-old man fell asleep while smoking in a grassy area behind his home.

RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned told the news agency that the flames searing through his clothing eventually woke the man up.

For reasons that will make sense by the end of this story, Learned said the man jumped on a bicycle and fled the scene instead of calling the authorities.

So when police responded to a call about a pedestrian hit by a train along a section of CP track, it's doubtful they imagined they'd also find the "man running from the scene of a suspicious fire" they'd already been looking for earlier.

The suspect is currently recovering in hospital from serious burns and a head wound received from his abrupt introduction to the country's railway system.

I'm not sure if this guy is an idiot, or my hero.

I mean seriously, hit by a freakin' train while on fire? That's a pretty badass way to go. Big time overkill though, no pun intended. I mean, did he think that the train alone wouldn't be enough to do the job?!

So apparently he is also wanted for assault and he stole the bike that he used to ride away on.

Sounds like a classy gent.

I'm surprised this hasn't turned into a ridiculous pun thread.

You know what they say;

If you can't stand the heat, get out of the train.
