A teenager in Wales has faced the wrath of his mother after he performed a backflip on top of a bridge, and it seems that will be the only consequence.
16-year-old James Corr ventured up Rhyl’s blue bridge and had a friend record his death-defying stunt at the top, but according to The Daily Post police say he has done nothing wrong and refused to comment as a result.
Denbighshire council have apparently sided with the lad’s mum and condemned his free-running antics.
A spokesperson said:
We don’t condone this kind of irresponsible behaviour. It needlessly puts personal safety at risk and possibly the safety of others too.
Corr told the Post:
I know people say free-running is stupid and antisocial and everyone’s entitled to their own opinions.
I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t think it was in my ability and if I’d have got up on the bridge and had even the slightest doubt, I wouldn’t have done it.
I know the risks but I also know my limits…When I landed the backflip on the bridge, it gave me an overwhelming feeling that I’ve only ever had a handful of times.
It’s a feeling I don’t get from anything else.
Brave or stupid, you can’t argue that this lad has major cojones.
