In a video taken at an event in South Africa, a negro can be seen wining the Darwin Award head first.
Shocking footage from Umlazi, South Africa shows a local bodybuilder named Sifiso Lungelo Thabete failing during a backflip attempt at a local bodybuilding contest. The colored man, 23, died on arrival in hospital on Saturday, August 5, after his attempt of a backflip went horribly wrong when Thabathe could not spin the flip fully and landed on the back of his head.
Dressed only in a black Speedo and socks, he walks on stage and attempts to do what looks like a backward somersault, while the crowd cheers him on.
He somehow lands head first and collapses. After a few seconds, a group of men try to help him when they realise that he isn’t getting up.
“He was rushed to hospital where he died on arrival,” said police spokesperson Colonel Thembeka Mbhele.
An inquest docket was opened at Umlazi police station for investigation, said Mbhele.
According to Body Building South Africa, “Sifiso had a signature backflip” he liked to perform on stage.
Socks Kill. Ban Socks !
“We suspect, because he was wearing socks this time, that he slipped or didn’t get enough momentum and landed horribly on his head,” BBSA national executive president Wayne Price told News24.
The video of Sifiso in his final moments was circulated on social media, and quickly became viral, however, his family got triggered and asked that people desist from sharing it.
“We’re aware of a video of the incident circulating on social media, as is Sifiso’s family, and they’re understandably very upset about that,” Price stated.
We don’t care about feelings, so we share it. WATCH:
