An unidentified person has set themselves on fire outside the courthouse where former President Donald Trump’s hush money trial is underway.

The scene occurred live on CNN, with first responders rushing to extinguish the flames.

Video circulating online shows flames engulfing a man kneeling on the ground with his hands behind his head. Bystanders said he poured some kind of accelerant over himself moments before.

CNN anchor Lauren Coats attempted to describe the apparent self-immolation.

The man eventually collapsed, screaming in agony. After several more excruciating seconds, police officers arrived with fire extinguishers to put out the fire.

His body, reportedly twitching, was placed on a gurney and whisked to a nearby hospital.

The shocking incident occurred in a barricaded park outside Manhattan’s 100 Centre Street courthouse.

Jury selection was completed on Friday, with a 12-person jury and six alternates. Opening arguments are set to begin Monday.
