An 18-year-old Baylor University freshman from Frisco died Sunday in a bizarre accident while doing a backflip, the school said in a statement.
Kevin Signo, a pre-biology student, was rehearsing traditional dances with the Filipino Students Association when he practiced a back flip and landed on his head, according to NBC station KCEN-TV in Waco.
The Waco Tribune-Herald quoted a justice of the peace as saying Signo hit his forehead and suffered a fatal spinal injury.
His parents, Henry and Jackie Signo, said their son was an introvert in high school but thrived at Baylor.
