Bodybuilder Dies After Backflip Gone Wrong

Sifiso Lungelo Thabete, a bodybuilder from Umlazi in KwaZulu-Natal, reportedly died on Saturday after breaking his neck in a freak accident.

In a video that been circulating on social media, the IFBB World champion in the up-to-75kg category can be seen flexing his muscles as he walks to the mat; he then tries to do a backflip, but lands on his head.

His friends and medics run to the bodybuilder for assistance. According to bodybuilding blogs, he never recovered from the fall.
