A 17-year-old teenager named Mohammad Khalid has tragically passed away after he attempted a dangerous stunt that he had seen in the movie 21 Jump Street… and in various other videos he had seen on the internet.
The move that the young man from Sterling, Virginia tried is called car surfing, and his death occurred when he and his 18-year-old friend were attempting the move in and on their car in a parking lot.
Marza Ramadan described the incident:
“He was on the top, the car top, he didn't hold his body. And when he spinned, he fell down and hit his face from here to here by the front tire.”
Once Mohammad Khalid fell off the car, he was immediately and critically injured, and died three days later in the hospital.
The Loudoun County Sheriff dept. has not yet revealed whether they plan to pursue criminal charges against the unnamed 18-year-old friend who was behind the wheel while Mohammad Khalid was on the roof.
It's always tragic to hear of a young man's untimely death, and the fact that this definitely could have been prevented if the teens had not attempted the dangerous stunt. Heartbreaking.
Hopefully this will serve as some sort of warning signal to any other teens or anyone that these kind of stunts should NOT be tried at home. It isn't worth the risk of losing one's life!
