A final year student of the University of Education, Winneba (UEW) has died after a failed backflip on Tuesday, September 7.
The deceased, Abdul Majeed Sani suffered severe injury to his spine when a backflip celebration after writing his final exams at school went wrong.
Sani was a student from the Department of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Sports who was also a gymnast that represented the school at all levels in competitions.
However, things went south when the deceased failed an attempted backflip stunt after walking from the examination hall in jubilation when he landed on his neck.
Sources indicate that Sani was rushed to the Trauma and Specialist Hospital in Winneba for treatment after the bizarre moment.
He was then transferred to a health facility in Accra where he died on Thursday, September, 9.
Friends and colleagues have expressed shock over the loss of Sani as some could still not believe he is no more.
