Star Wars fans burnt by petrol-filled 'light sabre'
By Stewart Payne
(Filed: 24/05/2005)

A man of 20 and a girl aged 17 were engulfed in flames when a home-made Star Wars "light sabre" exploded and showered them with burning petrol.

Mark Webb and Shelley Mandiville are thought to have filled a fluorescent tube with fuel to imitate the weapons in the latest Star Wars film Revenge of the Sith, released at the weekend. But their clothing caught fire and Mr Webb suffered 40 per cent burns.

Firemen were called to woodland near Hemel Hempstead, Herts, on Sunday and found them on the ground. Police think they had been filming themselves.

Last night they were in a critical condition at a specialist burns unit at Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford, Essex

Anybody check to see if a camera was present?
When will Ogrish have a copy?

I guess it was just a matter of time.

I hope that video makes it to the internet. It'll be an instant classic.

It wasn't any of use was it? Perhaps the UK crew should sound off just to make sure...

As to the banning of lightsabers:

It's been reported that a videotape of the 'incident' has been recovered at the scene by the Police… so I guess we are not going to see it on Ogrish.com.

Clearly, the Force was not with them…

I'm trying to figure out how a tube filled with gas is a light-saber. They lit the end of the thing on fire or something?

Sorry to hear that... I also learned my lesson, recently about not bringing one's entire weapons collection to sea.
