A protestor set himself on fire outside the courthouse where former President Donald Trump is on trial in Manhattan.

MSNBC reporter Yasmin Vossoughian was covering the trial outside the courthouse when the man set himself on fire on Friday.

Vossoughian announced that a man had set himself on fire across the street from where she was reporting.

Police identified the man as Maxwell Azzarello, of St. Augustine, Fla. Spectators rushed over to put the fire out.

Azzarello was rushed to a hospital where he is in serious condition. Azzarello arrived in New York earlier in the week.

Police said his family was unaware he was in New York.

The incident happened after the judge swore in 12 jurors and dismissed two more.
