Mom’s Handstand Goes Wrong As She Nearly Lands On Her Son
This video, posted by Mark Felix, portrays one of those moments that make every audience instantly cringe. However, that cringe is always followed with hysterical laughter. This is definitely one of those moments that are commonly featured on channels such as Caters News and America’s Funniest Home Videos. This particular conundrum happens at a family home between a mother and her son. Presumably, dad is the one behind the camera filming the entire incident.
This mother in particular was showing off a little bit for her son, but it just did not quite go as she had planned it to go. Teri Laura Horne, from Bromyard, Herefordshire, was attempting to perform a handstand when this video was taken. However, the result was unintentional and potentially disastrous. Thankfully, no one was injured, which is what makes this video one that we can all get a good laugh from. This would not be quite as funny if the mother or her son had been injured in any way.
Teri Laura, the mother, launches her body into a handstand position, and she plans to use the door behind her as a sort of stabilizer while she hangs upside down. We do have to give her props for even being able to go into a handstand like this anyway, as most adults cannot actually do even that. The problem arose when the door was not completely shut and latched. Of course, Teri Laura Horne did not realize this small fact. It is always unfortunate when a tiny little detail slips right past you and completely ruins your plans.
When Teri Laura moves into position and her legs hit the door, the door swings open behind her. It is at this point that we see that her young son is actually right behind the door. Again, this was not known by mom. The inevitable happens, and Teri Laura comes crashing down in somersault fashion, almost hitting her son on the way down. The poor little boy is obviously scared when this happens, but thankfully, he quickly moves out of the way as his mother’s legs come whizzing next to him. For a moment, it looks like she had hurt herself because of the fall and because she hits one of her child’s plastic scooting toys on the way down. However, when she turns around to look at the camera, her smile tells us that she is completely fine.
This could have turned out very differently if her son had not moved out of the way when she fell through the door frame. His sweet little voice is heard at the end of the video when he says “Mommy?” He is truly an adorable little boy, and he certainly has a mother with a knack for slapstick.
Interestingly enough, when you watch the moment right before the fall, this little boy’s mother actually has fantastic form in her handstand. If the door had been completely closed and secured, this would have been a pretty awesome trick for us to see!
