I pray for this boy and his family. His total recovery-mind-body and soul will take time.

Why would one want to pour gasoline on himself? I wouldn't want to do it that way?!!! Hopefully he will get the help he needs.

Ditto. And the unfortunate thing is he likely received 3rd degree burns - these will be permanent.

the parents need to know they are not responsible, the actions of their adult child are beyond their control.

If he survives. In the meantime he will suffer greatly.

Only eighteen years old. I pray he and his family get through this. Suicide saddens me so much.
