Motorcyclist ‘cooked alive’ after being ‘tasered by police’ at petrol station

A Florida motorcyclist is fighting for his life after he was tasered by a police officer at a petrol station which sparked a “horrific explosion” that “cooked” him alive, his lawyers have said.

Jean Barreto suffered third-degree burns over 75% of his body during the incident on 27 February as he filled up his dirt bike at a Wawa petrol station in Orlando, the NeJame Law firm said in a statement on Wednesday.
