Rescue spokeswoman Mária Svobodová told the news on Monday that the burned man managed to get to the petrol station in Těšínská Street alone, but he had serious injuries.
“He suffered burns on more than fifty percent of his body. The paramedics treated him and put him to sleep, and the ambulance then transported him to the burn center in Prague’s Vinohrady, ”the spokeswoman specified.
The man ran with a request for help to service the gas station on Sunday around 2 o’clock.
“Paramedics, firefighters and police officers came to the scene. Subsequently, it was found that the tent in which the homeless man lived was also on fire, “said police spokeswoman Dana Ladmanová on Sunday.
The case was taken over by forensic scientists, who deployed service dogs trained to search for flammables.
“According to the findings, the legal qualification will be determined and it is possible that it may have been negligent,” Ladmanová added.
