CURIOSIDADES OFFICIAL STATEMENT::
As you have noticed, starting Monday 26th of November, our messages to our fans have decreased significantly. Unfortunately our team was criminally assaulted in the person of Wayne Houchin.
At 12:35 noon when Bolvar Bueno, Wayne and Fran Houchin ended recording their segment on the TV program "Acrcate a los Astros de la seora Adriana Azzi, which was being hosted by Mr. Franklin Barazarte (Wayne's attacker), who also serves as the director of the TV show, who without notice and without any security measures, offered to "give them" a blessing using "Agua de Florida" (which is highly flammable due to its high alcohol content) proceeded to set fire to Wayne Houchin, resulting in serious burns to his face, neck, right ear, and his right hand.
We stress that this event was not part of our presentation, nor did we receive any notice that the host was going to carry out this PREMEDITATED CRIMINAL ACT.
Unfortunately the TV studio facilities did not have fire extinguishers, or first aid kits, anywhere on premises. Repeated requests for help to the staff of the studios were ignored. Only the rapid and efficient response by our team saved Wayne's life.
Right now he is stable, but sadly some called "journalists", lacking professionalism and sensitivity to human suffering, have taken a very unfortunate event and have used their airtime to ridicule Wayne for suffering this tragedy.
Misters Aridio Castillo and Domingo Bautista of the Dominican TV magazine "Super Revista", publicly have accused our team of practicing VooDoo and witchcraft and that the attack was divine justice for the evils of our cast members' practices.
We ask you, our friends and family, for your prayers and positive thoughts for the speedy recovery of our friend and colleague Wayne Houchin.
