A video has emerged showing the shocking moment a man became engulfed in a ball of flames after his mobile phone battery allegedly caught fire in his pocket.
The incident, which is believed to have taken place in Pakistan, was captured by a witness who watched in horror as the man ran around frantically trying to put himself out.
At the beginning of the clip the man, who can be seen walking down a road after getting off a bus, does not appear to be aware that his pocket has caught fire.
Suddenly the flames begin to rise and spread up his arm before engulfing his shirt – turning him into a ball of fire. The man begins to panic and runs in a circle screaming in pain while horrified witnesses attempt to help him put out the flames.
