A resident of India named Kumaraswamy died while shooting a video for the TikTok app. This writes the Indian Express.
According to eyewitnesses, a 20-year-old boy tried to do a flip and fell on his neck, injuring his spine. When Coomaraswamy was admitted to the hospital, doctors told his relatives that the boy had little chance of survival, since his veins and nerves were badly damaged. Physicians fought for eight days for his life, but Cumaraswami died.
The Indian worked as a dancer and also sang in a local orchestra. He was the only breadwinner in the family. According to relatives, Coomaraswamy did not have a smartphone, and his friends recorded video for TikTok. The guy wanted to become famous and get into a dance show.
Earlier, in April 2019, it became known that a court in India demanded that TikTok be removed from the AppStore and Google Play stores . This decision was made due to the presence on the site of pornography and indecent content. However, previously downloaded TikTok users can continue to use it.
