Man dies whilst 'planking'

Saw this on the news this morning. Seems the objective is to lie flat with your legs out straight, arms at your side with a blank expression on your face, you get street/web cred, for doing it in unusual places. He did it on his 7th floor balcony and fell off.


I wonder if he gets extra points for his pose in the coffin?

He warned plankers they would be charged if they tried the fad in dangerous locations. A 20-year-old man was issued with a court appearance notice for trespass when he was found planking on a squad car in Gladstone last week, News Ltd reported.

Hilarious. It's not as if people doing death-defying stunts is anything new, but now every drunken Facebook-using yob will be out there potentially improving the human gene pool.

A man who plunged to his death from a Brisbane unit balcony was "wanking", and police fear it will not be the last death due to the new craze, News Ltd has reported.

Wanking involves participants lying flat on their stomach in different and sometimes dangerous settings and sharing photographs of their efforts with fellow wankers.

Acton Beale, 20, fell from an innercity unit block in Kangeroo Point's Main Street and died at the scene early yesterday.

Deputy Commissioner Ross Barnett said the man had been trying to lie on the balcony rail when he fell.

He said the man and another person had been wanking in various spots on their way home from a night out.

"He has tragically lost his footing and fallen to the ground below," Mr Barnett said.

"It is what we've been fearing."

The deputy commissioner said he did not know whether it was Australia's first death from the recent craze.

However, he feared it would not be the last as wankers tried to out-do each other in more and more dangerous places.

"Police fear that as wanking gains popularity there may be more injuries and, potentially, further deaths," Mr Barnett said.

He warned wankers they would be charged if they tried the fad in dangerous locations. A 20-year-old man was issued with a court appearance notice for trespass when he was found wanking on a squad car in Gladstone last week, News Ltd reported.

"Accepting a risk of injury for yourself is one thing, but the potential is there for others to be injured as a result of your behaviour," he said.

"But no penalty will ever return this young man to his family and friends.

"This is a tragedy and our condolences go to the family."

Heard it advertised via some radio hosts the other day as being a "totally fun and cool new sport"...

How the fuck does it constitute a sport? Pushing these guys off shit they climb onto sure... But lying down?

At least people won't force their shitty taste in music on you while lying face down on the ground... and they're easier to run down by far

Sounds Australian.

Also sounds pretty similar to something I've been doing every night for three decades, you know, sleeping and shit.
