Hydrogen is indeed less dense than water and would float away, but this still is possible if the rate at which is floats away is low enough. If the concentration of hydrogen and oxygen right at the water level is high enough, you may get this effect.

electrolysis doesn't work if you have no way to store the separated helium and oxygen, it`ll just float away, and even IF there was still a high enough concentration of both in the air in the room, the flames wouldn`t stick to the surface of the water, but fill the majority of the room.
It just isn`t possible. water can`t burn, water is a god damn product of something burning, hydrogen and oxygen burning CREATES water in gas form.
it`s so sad seeing so many people who think they know what`s going on, when in fact they don`t have a damn clue what they are talking about.
