An unidentified woman has received almost $40,000 after a bartender set her on fire while making a flaming cocktail.

Footage from a Moscow bar, which has been viewed more than 13 million times on Facebook, shows the moment a woman catches on fire while a bartender makes a round of flaming sambucas.


Bartender Made A Big Mistake

The woman watches closely as the bartender pours the alcohol on the flames as a man next to her blows through a straw.

The combination engulfs the woman in flames as she screams and falls on the floor.

The woman runs downstairs to the bathroom to try and douse the flames, with another woman bringing her a wet towel to help.

The authenticity of the video could not be confirmed but those claiming to be special effects experts say that it is legitimate.
