Tragedy has struck the annual festival Burning Man over the weekend, with an attendee jumping into the fire, receiving fatal burns.
The 41-year-old man broke through the security barriers on Saturday night at roughly 10:30pm, before leaping into the 50-foot, flaming sculpture. He was dragged out by firefighters, however he succumbed to his burns later on.
