Blazing firefighter’s Guinness triumph

UPI – A French firefighter earned a Guinness World Record (GWR) for running a distance of about 272 metres (m) after being set on fire.

Jonathan Vero, 39, donned a protective suit and was set ablaze on a track in Haubourdin to break the record for longest distance full body burn run without oxygen.

Vero completed the first 328 feet in a time of 17 seconds, breaking a second record for fastest full body burn 100m sprint without oxygen.

Both records were previously held by British man Antony Britton, who ran a distance of about 204m and finished the first 100m in 24.58 seconds.

Vero works as both a firefighter and a professional stuntman. He told GWR he “always had a passion for fire” and has “never stopped playing with it”.
