A man set himself ablaze after his girlfriend rejected his marriage proposal in Qingdao city, Shangdong province on November 23, 2012.
The 38-year-old man, surnamed Wu, from Nanchang city, Jiangxi province suffered serious 60% burns over his body surface, and is now still in critical condition.
Wu met his girlfriend in Nanchang last year. But their relationship eventually came to a problem after being together for some while, and the girl left him for her hometown Qingdao and asked for a breakup.
On November 22, Wu drove a BMW car to Qingdao from Nanchang, which is around 1,100 kilometers away. He brought with him betrothal gifts worth tens of thousands of yuan in order to propose the girl.
The man also prepared for the worst by buying a barrel of gas on the road, in case his girlfriend refused him.
At around 8 a.m. on Nov 23, Wu arrived at the girl’s home.
He proposed to her, but was refused directly.
Wu threatened that he would not live if she did not marry him. The girl and her mother thought he was joking, but Wu poured the gas all over himself and ignited it.
The terrified mother and daughter called 110 immediately and attempted to put out the fire. When the rescuers arrived, Wu has been seriously injured.
He was sent to the municipal hospital of Qingdao immediately, and is taken care in the ICU now.
