Bulgarian Man Set Himself on Fire After Scandal With His Wife

A Bulgarian man set himself on fire after a fight with his wife.

The incident happened yesterday at 9:30 PM in the town of Simeonovgrad. A woman called the police about a scandal with the man she lives with. She refused to let the man in their home. He was upset and threatened to take his own life. The tried to commit a suicide by setting himself on fire. He was rushed to the Plovdiv hospital with heavy burns. The courts are investigating the case.

This isn’t the first case of a Bulgarian man setting himself on fire due to bad family relations. Earlier this year, a 58-year-old man did the same in Plovdiv after three previous attempts. While this method of self-harm is often done in protests, in these cases it seems like a genuine attempt for a suicide.

Luckily, the man from Simeonovgrad didn’t die in the incident and will be able to make a full physical and psychological recovery.
