Bengaluru, 24 Jun: A 23-year-old man, who broke his spinal cord while performing a somersault for a video meant to be uploaded on TikTok mobile application recently, succumbed to his injuries Sunday, police said.


Kumar from Godekere in Tumakuru district was seriously injured while performing a stunt at a school ground on June 18, they said adding he died without responding to treatment at Victoria Hospital here.



A video clipping of Kumar doing the stunt was widely shared on the social media.


The Madras High Court had recently banned the mobile app on a petition which contended that pornographic contents were uploaded on it.


However, the ban was later revoked by the Court with a caveat that if any “controversial” video violating this condition were found on the app, it would be considered a contempt of court.
