DENVER -- A Littleton man is fighting for his life after what friends call a terrible decision.
Jeremy Davis is in the hospital in critical condition. He fell Monday night while car surfing, and now his friends and loved ones want others to know about the dangers of this risky trend.
“He was the kind of person that would do absolutely anything for anyone,” said his best friend, Jeremy Moore. “He had probably one of the best hearts that anyone could ever have.”
Monday night, 20-year-old Davis was in Clement Park in Littleton with another man Moore said he barely knew. That man convinced Davis to car surf – jump on top of a moving car and try to hold on.
“He got peer pressured by some kids that he honestly didn’t even know and he was egged on to get on top of his car. And in the process of doing that he fell off, and he’s in critical condition in the hospital,” said Moore.
Moore got the call about his friend and arrived in a hospital room to see a person he didn’t even recognize.
“I walked into the room and I just couldn’t believe what I saw. It didn’t look like the same person,” he said.
As they pray for their friend’s recovery, Moore is taking care of Davis’ dog, Marley. And he’s sharing this scary story as a warning to others about the dangers of doing something risky.
“Don’t car surf. No matter what, because it will take your life,” he said.
Even if you’re trying to look cool.
The man driving the car was arrested, though it’s unclear what potential charges he may face.
