Warning: This video of a 19-year-old from Florida trying to leap over a moving car in order to impress college football recruiters is a bit graphic. As Kobe Bryant said while filming this stunt, “Do not try this at home.”

WKMG has more on what happened:
Bladimir Barreto, 19, had to be airlifted to Holmes Regional Medical Center with several broken bones and head injuries.
His mom told Local 6 they are not leaving his hospital bedside. Barreto has 89 stitches in one leg and hasn’t woken up since the crash.
Barreto’s 17-year-old brother Jerome, was driving the car near Palm Bay’s Knecht Park Wednesday evening, while another brother, Giovanny, caught the terrifying crash on camera.
Sadly, this John Wayne quote from Sands of Iwo Jima applies: “Life is tough, but it’s tougher if you’re stupid.” –Sgt. StrykerWKMG via The Big Lead]
