Rahul, second son of farmhands Karnan and Rajeshwari from Villupuram village, seemed as healthy and normal as any other baby at birth. But since then, the baby reportedly burst into flames at least four times, beginning when he was just nine days old...
Doctors who are treating him said only caution can save him from catching fire again.
“The baby should be kept in a cool and aerated space and should always be kept away from inflammatory articles and never be exposed to the hot sun for long. Further, the infant should also be clothed with fireproof attire,” Narayana Babu said.
They say he's releasing flammable gas from his pores. Maybe I've been watching too much Misfits, but I feel like this baby might have superpowers? Except he does keep getting burned by his own fire. Maybe he just needs the right super-suit?
