Jackson suffered severe burns after a pyrotechnics mishap. Still photos of the accident have appeared, but the new video on Us Weekly's Web site shows the moment Jackson's hair caught on fire and the top of his head became engulfed in flames.
Jackson doesn't appear to know his hair is on fire. In the video, he's still dancing as the flames are on his head. When he spins, the flames go out. People on the set tackle him to extinguish the fire. When Jackson emerges, the top of his head is bald.
Us Weekly reports that Jackson suffered second and third degree burns to his face and scalp. The magazine also suggests this may have been to start to a possible addiction to pills.
