An 87-year-old man has died in suburban New York after his clothes caught fire while he was riding his bicycle.
A passing motorist saw Rusin rolling on the ground and used a fire extinguisher to douse the flames.
Nassau County Detective Sgt. Les Meister says the fire is not suspicious.
County fire marshal spokesman Vincent McManus says it's likely that the cigarette ignited Rusin's nylon jacket.
Rusin was pronounced dead at 4:40 p.m. Thursday.
