Spontaneous Human Combustion

    An Irish coroner has ruled that 76 year old Michael Faherty has died as a result of spontaneous human combustion.  I had assumed that this was a myth, but now wonder if we have something new to worry about, if even coroners recognise the phenomenon.

        There was no mention of him drinking, however he was an elderly Irish man, not that this means anything.  The coroner found that the fact that his head was in the fireplace had nothing to do with his death.
