Video: Man's Costume Erupts In Flames At WeHo Halloween Carnaval
Things got crazy during WeHo's massive Halloween Carnaval Thursday night when a man's costume erupted in flames.
The burn victim, a 50-year-old man, was taken to a hospital in unspecified condition after his costume caught fire, City News Service reports.
An additional 45 people were taken to local hospitals throughout the night, according to the Los Angeles Times. Only four people were arrested, however.
About 500,000 people attended carnaval, police said. No further details about the nature of the arrests or injuries were immediately available, but authorities said that none were serious.
NBC's Chris Clackum caught the fire on camera:
