Chargrin Falls

About 1,200 spectators cheered as Bainbridge resident Ted Batchelor set himself on fire at 10 p.m. Saturday as he stood on boards in the Chagrin River in Chagrin Falls. Ted Batchelor, wearing a protective suit, prepares to jump into the Chagrin River to douse the flames. Sun photo by Brad Reubensaal. 

He walked alight for one minute and 10 seconds, then dove over the falls to douse the flames. 

The stunt raised $6,000 for the Valley Art Center. 

The August edition of the Guinness Book of World Records will list Batchelor as establishing the world record in 2004 for walking around on fire.
