Shocking:Man Sets Self Ablaze Outside Courthouse During Donald Trump’s Trial

A shocking incident unfolded outside the Manhattan courthouse on Friday, where a man set himself on fire during the trial of former U.S. President Donald Trump.

The man, whose identity remains unknown, was engulfed in flames outside the courthouse, where the trial is currently in the jury selection phase. Witnesses described a chaotic scene as the man burned and bystanders and law enforcement quickly intervened.

The trial, which has drawn extensive media attention and heavy security due to the high-profile nature of the charges against Trump, was momentarily overshadowed by this distressing event. Trump faces felony charges related to allegations of falsifying business records in connection with hush money payments.

Eyewitnesses reported that officers and bystanders attempted to extinguish the flames and separate the crowd from the burning man. The incident was captured in a widely circulated video showing the man twitching on the ground as a police officer approached with a fire extinguisher.

The severity of the man’s injuries was not immediately clear following the incident. Emergency responders quickly transported him from the scene on a stretcher. Items identified as belonging to the man, including a backpack and a gas can, were left at the site.

In the courtroom, the trial progressed with the selection of a full jury, comprising 12 jurors and six alternates, a group that includes professionals from various fields. The trial is set to continue with opening statements expected next week, marking a significant moment in U.S. history as Donald Trump becomes the first former president to face criminal trial.
