What is not natural is to demand at gunpoint that the attendant go back into the store and empty the till or, 'You're going to GET SICK.' The terrified attendant defended himself by turning the ethanol hose on the gun-waving robber, who reacted by firing a shot!
Police cautioned that it is unwise to douse armed robbers with ethanol. Unwise but effective. The bullet missed the attendant and sparks from the blast ignited the ethanol, leaving Luis Romario Fernandes covered with burns and fighting for his life in hospital. As badly off as he is, it would have been worse but the attendant immediately doused the blazing car with a fire extinguisher (pictured.)
Luis was reportedly on bail for suspicion of crimes including robbery and drug trafficking. Natural selection offers no bail, Dude. You got lucky...this time. Evolution is keeping her eye on you.
