    There was a kid at my high school last year who was really good, like everyone knew he would turn pro, but the day after school ended he went for a back 180 down a 13, under rotated, and hit his head REALLY hard. He died in the hospital the next day. Also I heard a story on NPR about a kid who was skateboarding and got hit by a car and died.

    I forgot, that one guy that used to skate for Santa Cruz...hmm, he skated bowl really well. Always wore full pads, one day at his local park he was showing some kids how to do an air and popped a huge one, but he caught a edge on landing and some how his helmet came off allowing his head to slam very hard. He died the next day. Forgot his name, google it if your intrested.

    I've heard of numerious skaters dieing sketching...although i doubt they were actual skaters, probably teens having some fun.

    Yes they have.
    Mostly from either head injuries or cars hitting them due to the lack of public skateparks in the area.

    Was it in Parkville, MO?
    I live like 15 miniutes from there and about a year ago while I was out with my mom this kid was doing about 25-30 mph down a massive hill that we were two miniutes away from.
    He hit a Lincoln Navigator and got flung 30 feet hit another little Civic type car and died on impact.

    i laughed. i laughed hard. how is it sad that someone was stupid enough to skate anywhere near the edge of a roof? i don't know the circumstances, but really, what possible reasoning could there be? 4,000 points grind all the pigeons off the telephone wires?
