Narrowly missed writing sports car. I'm guessing that it was an i20 Sportz variant and the scribe ASSumed it to imply a "sports edition".

Lives have been lost. The scribe could've tried to avoid sensationalising it.

No helmet. Any other safety gear? I didn't notice any.

I hope this guy got some sense beaten into his brains, but I'm not betting on it.

How would the world know it's him doing the 'stunts' if he wears an helmet. Lucky he will be if the surgeons can spot the face while on OT table.

Would the consequences of such a fall be that bad? (No, I'm not a two-wheeler.)

If they went to some fairly remote spot to do their tricks, it must have been a terrifying situation.

Poor kid. Poor stupid kid.

Not exactly. Yes a face hit on a sharp enough stone during such a fall is good enough to make one's face unrecognizable. I was just going over the board with the comment, more because people don't value their life as much as we value theirs. No harm in having some fun, but the least they could do is have appropriate safety gears in place.

He is lucky, this seems to be soft ground. Consequences could have been worse if this had been a concrete road.

I am sorry to say, but parents are to be blamed for spoiling the kids by giving costly things at an early age. By the way, I am not blindly against those parents, they need to gauge their kid's behaviour before doing so. Back in my days, I had never got things just like that, I was made to wait long, by the time I realize the importance and need of such things. So it's my parents' way of saying, "You won't get things easily if you get it, you better maintain it properly"

Before the train came into the frame i thought he could have pulled the bike, but after looking at the speed of the train even i would have left the bike on her own fate.

Not sure how many minutes he was trying to save, but got a lesson for life. I sometime wonder, if such people are so much conscious about time, they should not be on a bike at all, they should ideally be on a chauffeur driven luxury car
