REGARDLESS IF THE DEMISE OF THIS KID IS TRUE OR NOT, PEOPLE HAVE DIED FROM LESS AND FROM COUNTLESS REASONS. LIFE IS MORE FRAGILE THAN YOU THINK AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE DIE EVERYDAY. LIFE EXPIRES FROM SO MANY THINGS THAT MANY OF YOU AREN`T EVEN AWARE OF. NAIVETY MAY HAVE KILLED THIS KID AND, BASED ON THE MYRIADS OF DOUBTING REACTIONS LITTERED THROUGHOUT THIS THREAD, NAIVETY OBVIOUSLY IS AN APPARENT STATE OF MIND AMONG MANY OF YOU. IT`S SHAMEFUL THAT THERE ARE SOME OF YOU LAUGHING AT A POSSIBLE DEATH OR SIMPLY MAKING UNCOMPASSIONATE POSTINGS. BUT, IT ONLY PROVES THAT THOSE SAME INDIVIDUALS HAVE THEIR OWN FEARFUL OR OBLIVIOUS DEATH-RELATED ISSUES. WHETHER IT`S AN UNCONCIOUS OR SUBCONCIOUS THING IS UNCLEAR BUT AS YOU GROW OLDER (FORBIDDING ANYTHING HAPPENS TO YOU) YOU WILL LEARN ABOUT MORTALITY.

Theres a big chance he probably did die, it may look like he just skid across the floor, but when he landed he smashed his face pretty hard down in the ground before it came up again.

they had a kid at my school that died after a stupid skateboarding crash.
and its not like he was high up or anything, he just hit the ground too hard and wasent wearing any protection. he died a few hours later of brain hemoraging.

so if that damn gungle gym kid had died i could see how it would have been possible.

Heh, I can see it snapping the neck, and I do see a slight chance of hermorage(or whatever), but I don`t think it would be very likely you would die doing that - just biting half your tongue off.

OK, i admit i didn`t know him and he DIDNT die, but i was just trying to prove that doing something like that isnt idiotic, and any1 hu thinks it is stupid is a tw*t. Because you are scared of experimenting things of that great a risk, doesn`t nmake sum1 hus not scared idiotic. All you that think it is stupid should go and die. I admit we need less people in the world, those reductions should be made by killing the likes of you tw*ts.

well, anything`s possible, if he had any weak blood vessels in his brain, then sure, any head trama will cause a hemorrage. our bodies are fragile, even though are skulls are pretty tough. i believe it, i mean look, people who survive car accidents with the same force are taken to the hospital to see if there is any internal bleeding b/c it`s possible. dude should have been taken in right away, i suppose

Not sure who blamed the jungle gym but it certainly didn`t look as if that was the cause of death. Jumping off it doing a flip was the cause of the accident.

This hemorrage story sounds like it could happen from a minor blow to the temple, or an unusual outcome of trauma to the back of the head. However, these days, intracranial bleeding is diagnosed early on and treated.

As the clever ones might of noticed, his hands and torso hit the >>SAND<< first, breaking the fall considerably. He barely grazed his face. He would not even have had a headache, he would have sand in his mouth and or eyes.

ok. let me explain something to you people. wut this kid did is stupid. but it would not kill him. in NYC (where i live) there is an ancient playground or pyramid park or whatever near the met. the park has swinging ropes. right next to the ropes are all these bars you climb on. u usually dont go that far but if you take a good swing from the platform you can easily hit you head. well that happened to a kid when i was at the park. you could really hear the crack as his head hit the bar and it really hurt and was bloody. the kid didnt die. he got a headache. PS how the ropes work is that there are ropes in between platforms

WHEN I WAS 12 YEARS OLD, I WAS STRUCK BY A DRUNK DRIVER WHILE RIDING MY BIKE, I WAS ON THE SIDE WALK WHEN HE VEERED INTO ME. I FLEW OFF AND SLAMMED INTO A PARKED CAR. I HAVE 2 BIG ASS SCARS ON MY CHIN AND ONE ON MY HEAD BUT SUFFERED NO BROKEN BONES. I`M STILL BREATHING STRONG.

And anyway, Brian was stayin in England for a few months, because he spoke French and wanted to learn English with greater fluency. As France was where Parkour originated (Urban Gymnastics for the less informed) he would try this kind of stuff. He misjudged the landing and landed on his chin. Is that not plausible to you more ignorant and inquisitable types?

I do that stuff all the time, and seeing that scares me sh*tless! And it is true that he died, i used to know him, not well, but we sometimes did parkour (urban gymnastics if you will) together. Even though that does scare me that isn`t going to stop me from doing it, i`m hoping to put this sort of stuff into my career. My latest stunut is infact a front summersault over a bar on a pier 10 metres down on to grass. :D

I have to say that it looks like a fake.
First off, it seems scripted
`after you do this, i`ll do ____ one handed, but i could easily fall off and break my head open`
`you don`t have to do this if you don`t want to` x2
+they were filming it
+the kids feet actually hit first, then arms (extended to the side) then chest, then head
+the kid standing to the right doesn`t respond at all to his friend landing...granted it is just a split second.
+he landed in sand

granted, it still could have killed him...but i doubt it.

I don`t know if I believe it or not. I actually have had a brain hemmorage and I almost died. I still to this day don`t know what caused it. The only physical activity I had done was tackle football which I had played 100s of times before. After I played football, I was fine for like 5 hours then I started feeling sick, threw up, went to my dorm room, and proceeded to go in to seizures from the brain hemmorage. It is possible, anything is.

He could die, if you punch someone in the face (up towards the nose) it can break and stick into your brain. You`re dead instantly. There are alot of things that can happen, the head is really fragile. TV isn`t real, this is. If he didn`t die than don`t mind what`s next and what i just wrote.

"In loving memory" HOW THE "%&! CAN YOU SAY THAT?! YOU PUT THE VIDEO OF THAT KID DYING ON THE NET! That`s just disrespect of that kid.

I once broke my arm whilst swinging from the monkey bars. Then again, I don`t suppose it helped matters much that the bars were covered in Stretch-Armstrong goo and that I was skipping every other rung.

The guy in the clip, on the other hand, is plainly an idiot. Why isn`t he on his leash?

...the ground. He flopped forward and smacked his head, I would expect his body to absorb most of the impact. I would have to say that unless he truely had a weak skull, he couldn`t have died from that. A massive headache, yes, but a death? I am not so sure about that...

Rewatched the video quite a few times. He begins to jump between 0:24-0:25. At 0:26 you see him at the ground, flat. He has NOT fallen directly on his head, rather "flopped" towards his head. However he did bounce back up and let out a sign of slight disconfort. We do not know what happens, because at 0:26 the screen goes black and at 0:30 you can see the scren display "In Loving Memory".

This kid is between the age of 15 and 16, which seems as though it could be true listening to his voice. This video raises the questions, could he really have died? As noted on YouTube, he died of a Brain Hemorrhage. As we all know, it is bleeding of the brain that kills of brain cells. And what is the #1 cause of Brain Hemmorrages in humans under 50? Head Injuries. Examining the video, some questions arise as to if the damage was severe emough.

Well, this is hard to say. Due to his flipping, an increased speed could have been achieved, releasing great force against

There`s no way he died.. He would have gone sterile if anything. Look how he landed! That would give you a minor headache at least, I mean if it was off a house I could understand, not off of a 4 foot childrens gym thing. People have fallen out of 5 story buildings and lived, unless he had some serious medical complications then I really dont think that would kill him.

A message from the poster of the video on YouTube: This video is dedicated to my good friend Brian Qian. Because of poor choices, Brian ultimately paid the price with his life. This video is not meant to entertain but rather demonstrate how fragile life really is. Though he was initially all right, in a few minutes, Brian became unconscious due to a massive brain hemorrhage. He fell into a coma and passed away three days later. This one`s for you Brian--we all miss you here.

Who knows whether or not it`s true...
