A man babysitting accidentally killed his girlfriend’s toddler during imitating a wrestling move with the baby on his shoulders.

Brandon Hoffman (20), from New Jersey, was trying to do former heavyweight champion The Undertaker’s ‘The Last Ride’ , which involves picking up your opponents on to your shoulders in a reverse piggyback before throwing them to the ground.

In this case, the stunt was meant to land 18-month-old Bryson Shoemaker onto the bed. Instead Brandon missed and the little boy slammed onto the floor, breaking his neck and suffering a collapsed lung.

He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Brandon, who was looking after the child while the mother was working, initially told officers the accident happened when he threw Bryson in the air and did not catch him.

Eventually, the WWE fan admitted his failed attempt at imitating the wrestling move.

He was charged with involuntary manslaughter, child endangerment, aggravated assault and other offenses.
