    Man Dies in Conn. Dance Faceoff
    The Associated Press

    NEW BRITAIN, Conn. - A man died while trying to outdo a rival with an acrobatic move while "battle dancing," police said.

    Robert Stitt, 48, and his rival were competing in a parking lot Monday night when he tried a forward flip and landed on his head.

    "It was just two guys dancing. Everybody was laughing," Stitt's friend John Boxley said.

    Boxley said James Brown was on the radio and Stitt wanted to outdo a rival dancer, who had flipped in the air.

    Police said the victim went into cardiac arrest and was pronounced dead a short time at a local hospital.

    Police said several people were in the parking lot drinking and battle dancing, a competition in which each dancer tries one-upmanship with unique moves.

    Na, I'm 32 and the article said that the guy that died was 48. But hey I bet you and the deceased graduated high school in the same year.

    There was this other story I heard - at an office party this guy who apparently didn't know his strength was trying to swing dance. He grabbed this female coworker and threw her in the air. She landed on the floor with some pretty serious injuries and sued him.

    Dancing. Dangerous stuff.
