Over 20 people plucked up the courage to walk barefoot across burning hot embers in the annual Fire Walk, cheered on by hundreds of supporters.
First across was bass-guitarist Mark King of Level 42, who took the unique walking challenge with ease following a ‘learn or burn’ motivational seminar which was delivered to all of those involved.
If that wasn’t wild enough, a similar daredevil walk was held earlier in the evening seeing men and women of all ages walk across 2000 broken wine bottles.[stream provider=youtube flv=x:/youtu.be/vCkuOIhLLHg flv=x:/youtu.be/vCkuOIhLLHg img=x:/www.islandecho.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/markingvideothumb-191×150.jpg embed=false share=false width=620 height=360 dock=true controlbar=over bandwidth=high autostart=false /]
The event was held in aid of Beaulieu House, a repsite centre for children on the Isle of Wight, of which Mark King is patron of.
