Plus the others in the background carrying on about their business, and I guess I should also mention the cameraman who found filming to be of MOST importance.
Is it any surprise that these cultures are ridden with poverty and misery and are basically equal to dogshit when this is the level of care citizens have for their fellow man. Let's be clear here. This is not a small 'group' of a few people the act like this. This is something we see in almost every single fire video on DR.
Infact, there was a recent video, involving an Asian man, who comes running out of his truck on fire after he crashed it. Everyone in the area came running to his aid and began throwing sand on him and pouring water on him which immediately extinguished the fire. I remember some of the comments on the video were pointing out the fact that it was odd to see a video that involved lots of people actually trying to help someone on fire rather than the bystander effect we see almost everywhere that's
3rd world. The fact that 3rd worlders actually fan the flames is ridiculous. Cavemen understood how fire works, yet there are modern humans that don't.
How many movies have you seen of Americans reacting to a person on fire? What do you have to compare it to? The thing that surprises me more than anything is how someone who lights himself on fire doesn't understand how much it is going to hurt.
