TULSA, Oklahoma -

A Tulsa man has burns over 90 percent of his body after he was found on fire inside his downtown apartment.

Witnesses say a woman ran outside Wednesday afternoon yelling that her son was on fire.

Two cousins who heard her desperate cry for help, jumped into action.

Gary Wells, one of the rescuers, said, "You could see him, he was right in the middle of the flames. His mother was screaming hysterically, so Joseph and I went in and got him."

There's no word yet on how the fire started.
