A man was rushed to a hospital after sustaining burns all over the body when he allegedly set himself on fire near the Magellan's Cross shrine Cebu City Thursday morning.

The man, who was not immediately identified, was in critical condition when he was at the Cebu City Medical Center, according to a report by radio dzBB's Cebu affiliate.
