One never knows when the time is over and the same happened to this bodybuilder who attempted a failed backflip. This happened in Umlazi in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
Sifiso Lungelo Thabete was attempting to entertain the crowd by practising a backflip but something horrendous happened to him and he died. People were filming him since he was a celebrity. One of the recordings went online and instantly became viral.
No one could have expected a backflip failure from a trained body builder. At that moment people thought that nothing had happened to the body builder but moments after he landed on the ground no signs of movements could be seen which made people concerned about his well being. They rushed towards him and moved him around to find if he was okay.
Unfortunately, he was seriously injured and had broken his neck.
In the video, it can be seen that this all happened when Thabete started running and jumped up for a backflip to gain the people’s attention. He must have taken a high jump instead of that partial jump for backflip which made him land on the ground on his neck.
In reality, he didn’t rotate in the air. He already was a body builder and his weight was enough to break his neck. His full body landed on his neck and gave a sudden jerk which resulted in his death.

Sifiso most recent victory was at the second edition of IFBB muscle Mulisha grand Prix. He already had impressed the crowd and the judges with his heavy muscles. His unbelievable muscle size and maturity beyond his age had already made everyone a big fan of him.
Fans describe his passing as a huge loss to the sports.
