Jackass inspired stunt kills German
We can only hold out hope. According to German police, a 20 year old German student only identified as Tobias is dead this weekend after a lethal Jackass inspired stunt off of a merry go round ended in a big splat after he plunged face first into the ground.
Police told Daily News [translated] that ‘Tobias’ was taped to the merry go around while one end of the tape/rope was tied to a car in which the boys friends reportedly were in and pressed on the gas to make the merry go round spin even faster.. which ended in a bloop and his death.
German po-po’s are weighing manslaughter charges against the unidentified teenagers. A quick internet check by Daily News also notes that the group identified themselves as the Bavarian Dumbasses [ironic]
