WASHINGTON, DC - AUGUST 07: In this photo illustration, the TikTok app is displayed on an Apple iPhone on August 7, 2020 in Washington, DC. On Thursday evening, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that bans any transactions between the parent company of TikTok, ByteDance, and U.S. citizens due to national security reasons. The president signed a separate executive order banning transactions with China-based tech company Tencent, which owns the app WeChat. Both orders are set to take effect in 45 days.

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.
