Watch, the parents of this "wizard" will sue the govt or fire station for negligence and win! Obviously this kid has watched the worlds dumbest on cable.

Well of course it's the truck drivers fault! Did he have a clearly posted sign on the back of the truck in several languages indicating that hanging on to the back of the truck while skateboarding could result in serious injury or death?
Sounds like we need another Congressional intervention here, new laws and regulations and of course a "settlement" because of the truck owners negligence.
