In terms of sports that can land you in the hospital, skateboarding has to be near the top of the list and this week, one teen skateboarder nearly lost his life after attempting a stunt for a YouTube clip.
The two teens were filming themselves trying out some cool skateboarding stunts and one thought it would be a great idea to skate down a steep driveway.
At first, the stunt looks relatively harmless until the teen loses control of his skateboard and crashes. The crash ends up saving his life since his skateboard get crushed seconds later by a moving car and if he was still on it, he probably would have as well:
