Thirty-two daring stuntmen and women have broken the record for the Most people performing full body burns, after they set fire to themselves at the Grand Parade in Cape Town, South Africa.full_body_burn_record_1.jpg
The attempt was organised by Kevin Bitters, Grant Powell and Vernon Willemse, from Paradigm Shift Special Effects, to promote their performers’ talents "and get a group of like-minded people with world-class skill sets and experience together for some fun."
Although it was fun, safety was a huge concern for the stunt professionals and putting together an event like this required a lot of planning.

The fire-proof costumes and gel used were thoroughly tested before the official attempt and every person was shadowed by someone who monitored their safety and health both during and after the challenge.

The Guinness World Records attempt made for an impressive spectacle though, as the 32 flaming participants walked together in a line, lighting up the sky.

Once they were finished, they fell to the floor to be extinguished by their helper.Most-people-performing-full-body-burns_tcm25-527297.jpg
Prior to this, the record for the Most people performing full body burns stood at 21 and was achieved during an event at the Hotcards Burn in Cleveland, Ohio, USA on 19 October 2013.

The stunt performers were: Blaze Agulhas, Branda Firmani, Bronwin October, Christy Morcos, Craig Mcrae, Damien Green, Daniel Fourie, David Davadoss, Deville Vanik, Fleur van Eeden, Francois Groenwald, Frans Steyn, Hein de Vries, Ian Williamson, Jacques du Plessis, Jenny Uyambu, Juan van Waarsveld, Kayja Hopkins, Lana Katz, Matthew van Leeve, Mick Milligan, Mike Solomon, Minky Ndlovu, Natahn Wheatley, Own Mcrae, Reon van de Watt, Shane Kruger, Shaun Verth, Shawn van Zyl, Toni Erasmus, Warren Germishuys and Anneli Muller.
