Accident → Spontaneous Human Combustion (SHC)

This Brazilian young woman died as a result of spontaneous human combustion (SHC). The witnesses told that the woman's body was incinerated within seconds. You can see the victim's upper extremities are completely incinerated.

Spontaneous human combustion (SHC) is the alleged process of a human body catching fire as a result of heat generated by internal chemical or nuclear action.
There are theories on this occurance but no one is sure how or why it happens. One theory is ball lightning which would produce similar results. When ball lightning comes into contact with a grounded human body, the flesh (including bones) may be burned completely (it can be explained by the ball plasmas heat which is 3000-5000 degrees C).
We are thinking that unhappy woman apparently tried to escape from the ball lightning contact and occasionally touched it with her hands, that is why her arms were severely dismembered.
The interesting fact was that her clothes was not burned to the same extent as her flesh.
Thank you for visiting! Take time to appreciate life!

a lot of charred material lying around the body. Looks like some piled materials on the body and set it on fire.

There has been several cases of Ball Lighting hitting people and not yielded SHC. There are several theories concerning its hard to determine whether an accelerant was phosphorous
