Motivational speaker Tony Robbins attended Game 6 of the 2016 NBA finals June 16 in Cleveland.
Longtime followers of speaker Tony Robbins say those who were treated for burns after walking across coals Thursday night during a motivational exercise in downtown Dallas lacked the proper focus. But a burn expert at Parkland Memorial Hospital says it’s no wonder five people were hospitalized and dozens more were treated at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center after the fire-walking session.
About 7,000 people attended the “Unleash the Power Within” event, Robbins’ staff said, and the vast majority of them performed the fire-walk. Participants spent the entire first day of the four-day event preparing themselves to achieve their “peak state” before walking across the 15 feet of coals. But social media and smartphones are a powerful distraction that can shake that focus, said Tad Schinke, who has been a crew member at more than 100 Robbins events. Paramedics treated injured participants outside the Unleash the Power Within event at Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas early Friday morning. Campbell, however, said feet are no match for burning coals, no matter how focused the participant might be. Paramedics found a large number of the would-be fire-walkers with burns on their feet and lower extremities, Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans said.
Evans said two paramedics and a rescue unit were posted at the event beforehand, in addition to a private team of medics.
Erin Clark, a participant from Dallas, said there were several lanes of burning coals set up in a parking lot outside the convention center, and it took five or six steps to clear them to the sod on the other side.Crew members at the end of each lane slowed down the fire-walkers and washed their feet. Paul Gold of West Palm Beach, Fla., told The Associated Press that he suffered second-degree burns on both feet. Gold, 44, suspects the difference this time was that staff members didn’t allow the coals to cool enough before adding more.
Bahareh Hosseini of Dallas has done two other fire walks at Robbins’ events, but Thursday night she burned her feet so badly she couldn’t walk afterward.
Schinke said people’s focus was likely disrupted by all the ambulances, which ultimately ended up “just sitting there.” He said it’s not uncommon for a few people to get minor blisters, but in his almost 24 years’ experience, he’s never heard of anyone seriously burning his or her feet. Hosseini said she heard other people complaining about their feet after the fire walk, but their injuries weren’t serious and they were just being “childish,” she said. But Campbell, the Parkland burn expert, said anyone suffering from foot burns should see a doctor.
Pujan Patel of Dallas said he felt great after the fire walk and was dancing with everyone afterward.

Ashes left over from Thursday night’s fire walk were disposed of in a Dumpster at the convention center.

When she finished the fire-walk, Clark said, she did notice some people sitting on the curb looking at their feet, but only one seemed to be in serious pain. She said that she was fine Friday and that her burns were her fault and had nothing to do with Robbins or his staff. Her brother, who was on the medical team Thursday night, rubbed aloe vera on people’s feet, and they were fine, she said.
