A 19-year-old man is expected to recover after being airlifted to hospital following a longboarding stunt in Surrey, B.C., on Saturday.
RCMP Staff Sgt. Bob Pinkewycz says the man was conscious and breathing when he was flown to hospital from 195th Street and 3A Avenue.
"It appears he was towed by his father up this significant hill that they were using to board on, so he was being towed up at about 15 miles per hour, basically fell off and hit his noggin and lost consciousness."
Pinkewycz says it was either raining or snowing at the time and advises longboarders not to attempt stunts in those conditions.
