Ouch! it Burns Mummy
What next -All Blacks walk on Water? The Kiwis are obviously prepared to try anything to conjure up super human feets(sic) no doubt in training for next year's British Lions Tour (hopefully with Martin Johnson) if the following story is anything to go by:
Ananova: Twenty-eight people have been treated for burns during a fire-walking event in New Zealand.
Eleven of the 28 were taken to hospital in Dunedin where they were treated for superficial burns and blistering.
They were among 341 people who thought they were creating a new world record for fire-walking, but a spokeswoman for Guinness said the fire-walking record is judged on distance, and not on numbers taking part.
Festival director Emma Ramsay Brown said: "We certainly didn't want to cause any pain for people". Didn't anyone ever point out to them - hot coals burn!
They'll need to be harder than that when the Lions come
