25 Oct 2017 A Malaysian self-professed 'magic man' has died after accidentally steaming himself to death in a wok while trying to 'cleanse body and soul'.
Lim Ba, also known as Black Dog, could be seen sitting in lotus position in a giant metal pan at a Chinese temple in Kuala Sanglang, a small coastal village in northern Malaysia.
A lid was placed over the 68-year-old in preparation for the steaming and he clasped his hands in prayer before a fire was lit under the wok.
But after 30 minutes the performance went horribly wrong and devotees could hear Lim knocking frantically from inside. The lid was raised - and Lim was found unconscious, steam billowing out around him. He was pronounced dead from major second-degree burns and a heart attack.
