A woman who lit herself on fire inside the Mall of the Americas was in critical condition Thursday evening, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue officials said.
Police officials believe she tried to commit suicide.
The scene, which unfolded just after 3 p.m. outside of the Savage Boutique shop, left mall-goers shocked.
"She looked like a human torch, on fire from head to toe," said Santiago Castro, who manages a travel agency inside the mall.
The woman, 43, was not identified by police. Witnesses said she doused herself in a flammable liquid before lighting the fire. She then walked around the mall calmly and quietly.
