Man dead after BIXI bike stunt

Toronto police said the incident happened around 3:45 a.m. Monday near Lower River Street and King Street. The man was riding a rented BIXI bike with four of his friends, said Sgt. Jeff Douglas.

“He was trying to do some sort of stunt with the bike, some sort of jump,” said Sgt. Douglas. “He fell backwards. He banged his head.”

The victim, who was not wearing a helmet, died on the scene after his head hit the concrete ground, said the sergeant who called the incident “death by misadventure.”
