A 24-year-old TikTok user in Baláshija, Moscow has died live on the platform after being run over by his cousin. The two were trying to film a live trick, using a car and a structure built out of toilet paper packaging and rubber mats.
Several people have tried to do the trick on TikTok. It calls for a car to crash into the structure launching the other person into the air. At the last moment, the person jumps and lands behind the car. But, unfortunately, in this instance, the structure collapsed before the impact. This caused the other person to fall to the ground in front of the accelerating car, killing the person.
Please be safe on TikTok and don’t do anything dangerous. The video has since been taken down from TikTok but will be used by police to figure out exactly what happened. The driver faces possible wrongful death charges.
