Battle Dancing Fatality

'Battle dancing' kills Connecticut man

It's killing me that they don't name the JB tune.

Police in New Britain say they were told Robert Stitt said he wanted to outdo a dance move another man had done by flipping in the air. The two were in a parking lot with a James Brown tune playing on the radio.

Stitt's friend says the 48-year-old man tried to do a forward flip, and landed on his head. According to police, Stitt went into cardiac arrest and was pronounced dead at a hospital.

What a way to go.
