Spontaneous human combustion theory ruled out after baby bursts into flames
National Monitor, Rina Shah | August 24, 2013Three months ago, Rajeswari Karnan of Nedimoliyur, India gave birth to a healthy baby boy, reports The Hindu. Nine days after Rahul was born, his mother found him in flames, with no explanation as to how the fire started. Others from her village assumed that Rajeswari had set her son on fire intentionally. In the following months, three more incidents occurred where they found baby Rahul in flames with no explanation. Rahul was then referred to the Kilpauk Medical College Hospital for treatment.
Admitted into the pediatric intensive care unit, Rahul’s bed always had a fire extinguisher and a bucket of water nearby. The medical team researched the circumstances and found that, over the past 300 years, there have been 200 cases reported of spontaneous human combustion. It is an extremely rare, but scientifically documented condition in which air excreted from the body can cause spontaneous combustion. Heavy drinking in elderly individuals can increase the risk by excreting alcohol-like substances that are extremely flammable. The most recent reported case was in 1995 when a 73-year-old man in Wales died in his sleep after going up in flames. more at link: http://natmonitor.com/2013/08/24/spo...s-into-flames/This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!
Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.
Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.
I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

As a result, doctors have ruled out spontaneous human combustion and the likely cause of the flames is more common. They suspect that the flames started accidentally or are the result of abuse.
The parents are also asking for protection because they fear going back to their village if people think they abused their child, reports the Mirror. Doctors have not found an actual cause of the start of the flames, but without a report by the doctor or a parent, the police cannot investigate abuse.Just my opinion.
Be thankful for each day. Live in the moment.
