Man dies after risky dance move
A 27-year-old construction worker, who resides in Hopewell, Hanover, died following a dance-off at a party in that town last Tuesday.
Information is that the man, who goes by the pet name ‘Mel’, was at a party at a popular jerk centre with friends, when some of the latest local dance moves were being exhibited by patrons.
Mel chose a female partner who is estimated to weigh over 200 pounds, and decided to lie on the ground while she dived on him, mimicking a popular dancehall dance move.
“He started to complain of pain in his (testicles) immediately, and we had to help him up and assisted him to get a taxi home,” an alleged eyewitness said.
His pains got more unbearable during the night, so he was transported to hospital.
It is reported that he died the following day, with speculation rife in the Hopewell community that his death is as a result of the dance moves the previous night.
A post mortem will be conducted. People have been known to get injured both locally and overseas from dance moves.
