Springfield Mom Posts Teen Car Surfing on Facebook
SPRINGFIELD -- Is your kid foolish enough to be acting like a hood ornament on a moving SUV? In a video sent to us by a viewer from Springfield, the driver is not a teen. She's a 35-year-old mother of two who says there's nothing wrong with posting this stunt on social media.
Riding on the hood of a moving car is known as hood surfing. According to the Centers for Disease Control death has occurred at speeds as slow as 5 miles per hour.
This Springfield mom of two - who wishes to remain anonymous - says the prank was the teen's idea.
"Precious came up with the idea of doing a little skit," The Mom said. "I wasn't driving real fast and she jumped on the hood and I stopped and I didn't stop really hard. She jumped off and rolled."
Although this dismount had a safe ending, in 2007 a Bellbrook teen's car surfing stunt ended in death. Seven years ago this month 17 year old Ryan Keller fell of his friend's truck and died.
An outcome that never crossed the minds of this dare devil family.
"I was going 5 miles per hour. She wasn't hurt. Her parents back me 100 percent."
The Springfield mom posted both of the videos on Facebook and says she got a lot of likes and positive comments.
The mom says anyone who can't see this for the innocent prank that it is is just blowing things out of proportion.
"I really didn't see the problem with it. I'll never do it again because I don't want this type of attention," the mom continued. "I' m a really good mom."
Car surfing by anyone of any age is illegal.
