On Easter Sunday his ex girlfriend asked him to come over and help her with a leak in her bathroom. Now they had only been broken up for a little over a week and things had been civil so it not an odd request. They had also planned on having dinner and seeing a movie. Well after he finished fixing the sink but still on the floor of the bathroom, his ex girlfriend came in and doused him in lighter fluid and then used a torch and set him on fire. He got up and ran out of the bathroom trying to get out for help but she had him locked in the apartment and he was unable to get access to the front. After several attempts to get past her while in flames he was able to get out and the neighbors assisted him and called 911.
He is now in the hospital with severe burns to his face, upper right side of his chest and back as well as his right arm and hand. He will be in the hospital for a while and unable to work. He does not have family here in Florida and can use any help he can get towards medical expense and well as in the healing process.
