In what can only be described as horrific, a Maryland man who police had asked for help in locating yesterday, citing their concern for his safety, lit himself on fire on a grassy area outside of the White House.

The New York Post reports – A man who set himself on fire near the White House has died of his injuries, authorities confirmed Thursday.

Arnav Gupta, of Bethesda, Md., erupted into a bright orange fireball at the Ellipse, a tourist-filled 52-acre public park that sits north of the Washington Monument, around 12:20 p.m. Wednesday.

Once the flames were extinguished, Gupta was rushed to a local hospital for treatment.

But by the evening, he had succumbed to his injuries, the US Park Police said in an early-morning statement.

Gupta had been listed as a missing person by the Montgomery, MD Police Department. Yesterday, they notified their Facebook readers he had been located after he was identified as the man on fire.
