A man who set himself ablaze inside a Southern California Starbucks earlier this week died in the hospital, fire officials said Thursday.
The man, about 60 years old, lit himself on fire inside the bathroom of a Van Nuys Starbucks on Tuesday when bystanders heard "an explosive sound." He then staggered out of the bathroom and collapsed near the entrance, where Starbucks customers helped douse the flames, officials said.
The burns covered 90 percent of the man's body, officials said.
