According to the Spanish text on Houchin's Facebook the man was attempting a blessing.
    But the regular splashing and call to the spirits for a blessing don't look all that impressive so for all any one here on this forum know's this man was working off of some stupid ritual he read on the internet and thought would look impressive for the camera. That could have very well been the first time he tried it, and if you're not used to seeing your hand on fire that's the kind of thing that can lead to panic and stupid mistakes, like forgetting to blow it out and then throwing it in someones face. From what I know of occult practices I can see how that ritual was supposed to go, from some of the stupid instructions I've seen people put online I can see how that could have been one of them.
    Well...taking a quote from Wayne Houchin about this incident off of his twitter account "This was not part of a stunt or part of an act - this was a criminal attack." That is coming straight from Mr. Houchin himself. You can argue about "voodoo rituals gone wrong" all you want, the fact of the matter is, Wayne Houchin is laying in a hospital bed because of it. I hope he makes a speedy recovery, and comes back stronger than ever!

    We all hope Wayne is well as soon as possible.

    I'm guessing that very few of the forum members here have ever been on fire, or worked seriously with fire.

    I have. I've been a fire performer for over a decade. I am well familiar with the instant panic that fire can cause. I don't know the man's intentions and I'm not about to assume them without at least seeing an interview with him regarding it. He may, as previously suggested, been trying to bless Wayne (IE: Do something nice) and also trying to play it up for the TV when things went wrong. He may have been trying to cleanse Wayne of an evil spirit. He may be a psychopath. I don't know from the information I have been able to gather. Don't jump to conclusions without information.

    Let's not worry so much about what happens to him. I'm sure justice will be served. Let's just focus on helping Wayne in whatever way we can.

    I have never had the misfortune to deal with fire in that manor, but I have had to recover from third degree chemical burns. It is a very nasty experience. The most painful of my life; the recovery, not when I got burned. I hope that he recovers without scarring or too much pain. This is the kind of thing you expect to happen to David Blaine performing in Haiti, not Wayne Houchin on a TV show..

    A man is only as good as the light that falls upon him,
    what are we, if not the reflections of what falls upon us?

    I honestly don't care what the host's intentions were. At best he was being irresponsible and stupid. At worst he is a psychotic murderer. Wayne could have died had it not been for the actions of his friends.

    He has worked his whole life to get to this point in his career, especially now with Breaking Magic. It will be a long time before he can get back to touring and performing. He may not even look the same depending on how bad the scars will be. This was his head, face, and neck. Not to mention the injuries to his right hand.

    Here in the US we have become so soft we worry about the criminals more than the victims. It's sickening.

    Lets focus on finding ways to help lift Wayne's spirits throughout his recovery.

    Default Help Lift Wayne's Spirits

    Wayne has been a positive influence on all of us. I thought that a great way to show we are pulling for him would be to film ourselves doing an effect of his and send it over.

    Can T11 or someone create a centralized site were we can all upload our videos? We can also send it individually but I was thinking along the lines of how Calen Moreli's 360 Days of Magic did his site; simple and easy to view all videos.

    If you go to Houchin's Facebook you can see the release from the program where it states the the host offered "to give them the gift of a blessing" and you can see in the pictures that Houchin had time enough to opt out but not knowing what that loon was about to do why would he. While what the man did was criminal I'm arguing that it was criminal negligence and not a malicious attack, he lacks motive to maliciously attack Houchin. He wasn't some backwater TV host that was threatened by Houchin's Magic, he was a producer for an astrology/pshychic show filling in for the regular host.

    At this point with the information available it's all speculation no matter which side you're taking.

    The show, Acercate a Los Astros, is an Astrology/Psychic/Numerology show. The host, Franklin Barazarte, is the producer. He personally burned Wayne. Franklin's wife, Adriana Azzi is the normal host, but she was out of town. The voodoo charges, and the suggestion that this was God's revenge, were made against the the show in general, and the Curiosidades team that were on the show (BJ Bueno, Wayne and Fran) in particular, by Domngo Bautista, host of the television program Super Revista.

    Inertia is a property of matter.

    Details are still coming in, but Wayne is stable and recovering. While I can't speculate (or begin to understand) what this guy was attempting to do - or not do - the whole incident is simply shocking. For now, please keep Wayne and his family in your thoughts, and join us in wishing him a fast and full recovery.

    Mad Hatter -

    I'm not sure why you insists on making excuses for the host. It makes no difference. Always looking for an excuse for the person committing the crime. It's disgusting.

    This doesn't look like someone who didn't know what he was doing. Warning its graphic and very hard to watch.
