A California woman set her hair on fire while riding a BART train Tuesday.
A brief video clip posted on TikTok captured the incident, where the young woman can be seen crying and screaming as the flames engulf her scalp. One passenger calls out, “Your hair’s on fire!” before another passenger on the train swats at her in an effort to extinguish the fire.
BART officials said in a statement that the BART Police Department never received a call from the woman about the incident, but did hear from a station agent who said she “apparently set her own hair on fire.”
