It’s unfortunate that some people cannot resist that urge to try out the wrestling moves that they see on TV.
A man was charged with involuntary manslaughter after he attempted to perform the WWE’s wrestler, The Undertaker’s signature move, “The Last Ride” on his girlfriend’s 18 month old son in their home.
Brandon Hoffman was also charged with endangering the welfare of a chid and aggravated assault for what he did to little Bryson Shoemaker.
Hoffman told the police that he had successfully performed a different wrestling move before and he than attempted “The Last Ride” and missed the mattress he intended to slam the child on.
The boyfriend claims that he also attempted to perform CPR and the child and than instead of calling 911, he took the boy to the hospital himself.
The hospital told investigators that the child could have had a broken neck and a collapsed lung from the failed wrestling move.
