Fire Alarm

This is nuts.

It's a clip of Italian fathers' rights activist Nicola de Martino on a live talk show on italian tv. Sitting next to his 18 yr old son reunited once again after 12 years of separation, he suddenly tries to commit a public suicide by dousing himself in gasoline and lighting a match. The film crew and his son just about manage to contain him.

He afterwards explained that such was his suffering at the agony of separation from his son that he wanted to call attention to the plight of others suffering in similar circumstances. He said, "I cannot bear the thought of anyone having to go through what i went through."
