Man Dies 'Land Surfing' In Southsea

A 26-year-old man has died following an incident in the car park of the D-Day Museum at Clarence Esplanade, Southsea.

The Lithuanian man, who had been living in Oliver Road, Southsea, was boarding with two friends in the car park at around 6pm last night (Monday 25th June) when he collided with a post and sustained severe head injuries.

It's believed he was taking part in the craze known as 'land surfing'. That's when you're strapped down to a board.

It's thought he wasn't wearing a helmet.

He was airlifted to Southampton General Hospital and transferred to the neurological unit where he died last night, his friends and family at his side.
