Voodoo Priest's $300 Sex Ritual Leads to Apartment FireIn hopes of obtaining good luck through a voodoo ritual, a woman met with a neighborhood priest on the fourth floor of his Brooklyn apartment. Unfortunately, the ritual didn't quite go to plan, with candles used during the ceremony sparking a horrific fire that killed one resident, injured 11 surrounding residents and 20 firefighters, and leaving 50 families homeless.
The fire took a total of seven hours and 200 firefighters to put out and left one big dent of guilt on the woman who was seemingly seeking good fortune.
What makes this whole incident so tragic is that the woman paid $300 for the priest to perform this voodoo ritual on her. This, logically, led to sex, which is what caused the candles to initially start the blaze. When the pair finally noticed, the priest attempted to suppress the fire with water from his bathroom sink. A neighbor also opened a window in order to dissipate the smoke, but this only created a "blowtorch effect" and pushed the fire further into the hallway.
Eventually, the flames took down the fourth, fifth and sixth floors, causing a partial collapse of the roof. Guess the lucky charm didn't work out.l< << PREV 1 of 7 NEXT >>
