Breaking Magic star Wayne Houchin is recovering after a
Dominican Republic TV host threw flaming Aqua de Florida cologne in his
face. Houchin suffered burns on his head, face, neck, and hand. “This
was not a stunt or part of an act,” Houchin said on his Facebook page.
“[T]his was a criminal attack.”
Aqua de Florida is used by shamans in healing and cleansing rituals.
In this part of the world, for many people, witches and witchdoctors are
very real. Just two years ago in neighboring Haiti, around a dozen
suspected witches were hacked to death by machetes and stoned in the
streets. So it’s possible that the Approach the Stars TV host
thought he was doing a good thing in burning Houchin. That would explain
the statement released on the show’s Facebook page in which the attack
was described as a “blessing.”
