The Samuel Koch video showing a stunt accident on German TV show Wetten Dass is really tragic. Samuel Koch, seen in the video catapulting over a moving car on spring stilts, suffered massive injuries when the stunt went wrong.
Samuel Koch was rushed to a nearby hospital where he had emergency surgery after suffering a broken neck and blood clots near his brain, according to Walter Kehr, spokesman for the ZDF network, which airs Wetten Dass.
Was Samuel Koch paralyzed in the stunt accident?
While that information is not yet known, Samuel Koch is now in stable condition, according to the Associated Press.
The Samuel Koch video captures the tragic accident that took place on live television in Germany, in front of an audience of 4,000 plus an estimated 10 million TV viewers.
It’s unclear what exactly happened, but the Samuel Koch video seems to indicate that he hit his head on the top of the car while flipping, as he landed without attempting to catch himself.
Koch was wearing a helmet for the stunt; it’s believed his stilts may have malfunctioned, resulting in the stunt accident.
