Teen Falls Through Ceiling During High School Wrestling Tournament

A 19-year-old from Gainesville, Fla., is currently in the hospital with a back injury after he fell 40 feet through a gym skylight during a wrestling tournament at Buchholz High School, according to a Gainesville Sun report. At least he had a little padding.

The video, shot by one of the parents attending the event, shows the aftermath of the fall, but you can also hear the crash and thud as the teen slammed onto a mat. The correct reaction to the fall is heard immediately in the video: “SHIT!”
