    Source article and Google translate:

    The jiu-jitsu Gabriel Diniz, 15, suffered a serious accident while competing and is without body movements from the neck down. The fatality occurred on August 4, a Sunday, when Gabriel - who is still young, but struggled among adults - disputed the semifinals of the second round of the Championship Capixaba Jiu Jitsu in Gym Jones dos Santos Neves, in Victoria.

    According Brisa Carvalho, mother of Gabriel, doctors reported that the athlete was injured in the third and fourth vertebrae and underwent two surgeries. In the first, a day after the accident, doctors lined column Gabriel and put a plate in his neck. The second operation was done to remove bone fragments from injured site. Still unsure whether the child will be completely recovered, Brisa Oak ensures that the young already talking about fighting back.

    - He does not move his arms, legs do not move, but doctors are still not sure of anything. They (doctors) say to us that only time will tell if Gabriel will be able to walk again. He is responding well and we are asking God to all succeed. He says he still going to fight back and be champion. For me, I also believe that he will come back - says the mother of the fighter.

    Still in the hospital bed where he is hospitalized, in the municipality of Vila Velha, Gabriel Diniz sent a message to those who are praying for him.

    - I want to thank everyone out there who is praying, and I get just a place to do my rehab and come back soon to the mats - said Gabriel, who lives in Alegre, south of the Holy Spirit, and competed for Team Black Conch House.

    Federation changes rules after crash

    According Agnaldo Goes, president of the Federation of Jiu Jitsu of the Holy Spirit, even though only 15, Gabriel Diniz, often fought among competitors adults. However, the leader said that from now on account of the guidelines of the Brazilian Confederation of the sport, teenagers will no longer be able to compete against athletes from the adult category. Also according to Agnaldo, the fighter who applied the coup Gabriel is 23 years old, eight more than the teenager.

    From Wiki


    Make sure you treat your training partners well and if you ever get in a dangerous situation for your health tap early if you can. I'd hate to have anything similar to this happen in a mixed martial arts match especially on a big stage like the UFC.

      That's truly a horrible thing to happen to anyone, let alone a child.

      After watching the video, that was an odd move done by white. I got the impression he was frustrated/angry...It's difficult to imagine what he wanted to accomplish with it other than to get out of the position.

          Man, that sucks! Did his head get squished towards his chest when he landed?

            Is there any way to donate a little money towards this kid's medical bills??

              This is fucking horrible and I hope that people will realize that competition wins aren't worth that much. Just tap. You train to win against bad people who want to kill you. You compete against people who want a trophy or a medal. The trophy and medal aren't worth your health or well-being.

                Not tapping didn't have anything to do with that.

                  Yeah, that was a weird conclusion to draw.

                    That was a terrible accident. Can he recover from something like that?

                      Yeah, that's pretty much the worst possible way to land that I know of. On your head with all your body weight pressing your head to your chest. Plus another guy's body weight on top of it. Very similar position to the Randleman slam that should've crippled Fedor but didn't because he's Fedor.

                      When I was a kid I landed in that position once and couldn't move for probably 20 seconds. And that was on a trampoline with nobody else's weight on me. I thought I was done. It was a terrifying feeling.

                      This video has made me do some thinking today. I know it's a freak accident and freak accidents can happen in any sport. Both of my kids are training BJJ now. One of them loves it and one of them is feeling it out. I can say for damn sure I will never push them to train if they don't want to. Bad shit happens, but if it happened and I knew I had twisted my kid's arm to be there in the first place, I couldn't live with myself.

                        Hurts like hell the entire time too. I did that when I was smaller off of a game. We were jumping from the slide to the monkey bars to the next slide over. I missed and BAM! haha

                        Though accidents happen, is there anyway to prevent this sort of mistake from happening? Say dropping your hips lower or hugging up high? Because I end up in that sort of position a lot in Wrestling while being flipped around and now I'm a little worried.

                          The poor kid had his neck fractured in the high-C area. He is totally fucked and my heart goes out to him and his family. No chance of recovery folks. He will most likely succumb to pneumonia down the road. Patients like this suffer from respiratory issues as time passes. It breaks my heart.

                            My Kids were taught to finish what they start. Other than that, they will be pushed to excel not to participate.

                              That is a very fine law line to draw in competition. Such a margin for error.
