I have friends that witnessed this and friends that were on the other side of the man for this very reason. (There's a group of rangers around the giant fire because people are fucking morons and occasionally run in to throw things into the fire or try to take a piece of ash while it's still on fire).

Fuck you dude!
This has happened before and there were people set up to prevent it or other stupid ideas, so this took planning and effort to jump into fire in front of people.

From what I read he was a first timer (I've kinda tried to ignore this) and it shows, because no veteran would jeopardize other burns for their own selfish needs.
