A bartender in Lithuania accidently set a customer's face on fire while making a flaming drink called the Flaming Lamborghini. This happened on July 11 at Naktinis Tbilisis club in Panevezys.

The video shows the bartender mixing the drink when a flame explodes and shoots out at the man, who then catches on fire. Bar patrons appear to help put out the flame by smothering his head.

The man was taken into surgery, but no other information on the man's condition has been made available. According to an article in the Lithuanian news portal Lrytas, the victim's sister says the bar owner and the bartender visited her brother in the hospital.
