Walking on Coals Backfires at Tony Robbins Event
The Associated Press is reporting that 21 people at a San Jose event hosted by San Diego-based motivational speaker Tony Robbins suffered burns while walking across hot coals. The injuries took place Thursday. Having attendees walk across hot coals is one of Robbins's favorite tricks. The event at the San Jose Convention Center was called "Unleash the Power Within" -- a typical Robbins subject. Three of the injured were treated at hospitals. Most of the hurt had second and third degree burns, according to the San Jose Fire Department. Robbins International, Robbins's company, claimed that 6,000 attendees walked across the coals successfully on Thursday.
