Madras : A man hailing from Madras, Godekere in Tumakuru district aged 23 died due to his spinal cord getting snapped after he tried a stunt for a TikTok video he was recording for.
The man while performing a somersault for a video broke his spinal cord and succumbed to his injuries on Sunday. The video was recorded to be uploaded on TikTok mobile application recently.
Kumar from Godekere in Tumakuru district was seriously injured while performing a stunt at a school ground on June 18, they said. He added that he died without responding to treatment at Victoria Hospital.
A video clipping of Kumar doing the stunt was widely shared on social media. The Madras High Court had recently banned the mobile app on a petition which contended that pornographic contents were uploaded on it.
However, the court later revoked the ban with a caveat that if any “controversial” video violating this condition were found on the app, it would be considered a contempt of court.
