Firewalking fundraiser loses money
Stuff NZ |
"An attempt to create a world record for fire walking has led to 28 people being treated for burns - 11 of them at hospital... They were among 341 people who fulfilled criteria set by the Guinness Book of Records - stepping inside markers on the side of the 3.5 metre-long pit and being aged over 14 - and about 100 to 150 more who did not but also walked across the hot charcoal pit in the Octagon. The event, run by the New Zealand International Science Festival as a fund-raiser for defibrillators for the Order of St John, raised about $1000. But St John spent more than that treating patients."
