Valborg
 

Valborg is an old traditional Swedish celebration on the 30th of April every year in which people gather in an open area and set fire to ward off evil spirits and bid farewell to winter and welcome the spring season.

Unfortunately, accidents are bound to happen on this day every year because of excessive drinking and carefulness.

At approximately 21:16, a man burned himself while he poured flammable material on the fire which was lit for Valborg celebrations, and soon enough, the flames caught his clothes and began to flare up quickly.

And while he was trying to extinguish the fire, he fell on a child behind him, and people rushed to rescue him and the child:

Fortunately the child was not hurt, but the man suffered burns to his hands and face and was rushed to the hospital.
