Feet burned at Robbins motivational event

AT least 21 people have been treated for burns after they tried to walk on hot coals at a Tony Robbins event.

The San Jose Mercury News reports that at least three people went to a hospital and most suffered second- or third-degree burns.

Robbins was hosting a four-day gathering called "Unleash the Power Within" at the San Jose Convention Centre. Witnesses say on Thursday, a crowd went to a park where 12 lanes of hot coals were laid out on the grass.

Robbins' website promotes "The Firewalk Experience" in which people walk on super-heated coals.

Witness Jonathan Correll says he heard "screams of agony".

Fire Captain Reggie Williams says organisers had an open fire permit and emergency personnel were on standby.
