“Actually, the burns weren’t that big, but because it was on the face, we were worried that there would be swelling in the throat. We were worried that there would be internal injuries,” said Farid, explaining the reason Limbad had to have surgery, Sunday (3/9) as reported by detikJatim.

It is known that the fire-breathing attraction performed by magician Salim Babad or who is often called Limbad ended in disaster. The fire that was ejected consumed part of Limbad’s beard.
This incident went viral via messages on WhatsApp. In the video, one of Limbad’s assistants is initially seen holding a torch. A moment later, Limbad sprayed gasoline on the fire.
However, when it burst out, the fire suddenly grabbed the beard of a man who was famous after participating in a talent search event for magicians on one of these television stations. Beard fires are inevitable.
Next, Limbad looked panicked. He immediately tried to extinguish the fire that was burning his beard. Several times his hand pulled at the beard which was being engulfed in flames.
It is suspected that there was still petrol remaining in his mouth, and the fire grew. Limbad continues to try to extinguish the fire. A number of spectators also looked tense.
In the video, fire can be seen burning Limbad’s face. However, he seemed to remain standing firmly. Several times, Limbad shook his hair until the fire slowly went out.
