Man in Wheelchair Found Burning to Death on Metropolitan Pkwy

Police have not ruled whether this was an accident or intentional.

UPDATE: 10/22/12 Man has still not been identified.  He was in a motorized wheelchair, which police say could have caused to the fire.  Police say there were no initial signs of foul play, but the medical examiner continues to look into the accident for causes.

Saturday evening, the Atlanta Police reports that they received a call that a fire was ablaze in a vacant lot in the 2600 block of Metropolitan Parkway, next to the Family Dollar store in SW Atlanta. 

When the fire department made it to the scene they found a wheelchair with a man inside it, burning in the midst of flames.

“Upon arrival officers located a deceased male in a wheelchair,” police spokesman Officer John Chafee said. “The male appeared to have sustained burns.”

The man, that has yet to be identified, died at the scene.  According to WSB's reporting, witnesses said they heard a man crying for help, but no one could save him due to the flames. 

The Atlanta Fire Department was on the scene in a matter of 2 minutes, but they were unable to save the man, who was fully engulfed.

“The trees and everything was involved. He was not alive when we extinguished him,” said Atlanta Fire Rescue Capt. Sean Johnson.

The Medical Examiner spent hours on the scene, but was not yet able to determine the cause of the fire.  A more in-depth report should be released in the coming days.  Cascade Patch will update the story at that time.

Some tribes in Sudan and Senegal http://www.coachoutletonlinexc.net/ Coach Factory Outlet have an average height of 6-foot-6, which also happens to be the size of the average NBA player. People in Nigeria, http://www.louisvuittonoutletam.net/ Louis Vuitton Purses Mali and Congo tend to be very big and physical. We need to build a strategy to go into these regions http://www.coachoutletstoreze.com/ Coach Factory Outlet and cultivate the talent through infrastructure and instruction.Not long ago, soccer in Africa was almost http://www.guccibeltsoutletds.net/ Gucci Belts the same way. It was untapped.Kids in Africa start kicking a ball when they are six or seven years old, if not younger. http://www.coachfactoryonlinefn.net/ Coach Factory Outlet It's like baseball, basketball and football in America. If you're talented, people will find you. That's what http://www.coachfactoryonlineae.com/ Coach Factory Outlet happened with soccer. The number of academies has grown rapidly, and people are really into it. As a http://www.coachoutletb1.com/ Coach Factory Online result, nearly every major soccer team has a lot of African players.Through my experience as a Nigerian player, http://www.coachoutlethcs.com/ Coach Outlet Online coach and now NBA executive, I believe basketball can follow a similar path.
