Twenty-five people injured after walking on hot coals in Switzerland
Twenty-five people have been treated for burns after walking on hot coals in northern Switzerland.
Police in the canton of Zurich said they were called to a private event on the Au peninsula on Lake Zurich on Tuesday evening.
“25 people received medical treatment on the spot, 13 of whom had to be hospitalised with serious injuries.”
Investigators secured evidence and started a probe into the circumstances of the incident.
Walking over a bed of hot coals barefoot — also known as fire-walking — can be used as part of team-building exercises and charity events.
