Seven Year Old Dies Attempting To Recreate Bad Bunny Music Video

Seven-year-old Franklyn Mieses of the Dominican Republic was pronounced dead on Tuesday after sustaining severe burns in a fire accident earlier this week.

According to the Dominican newspaper Listin Diario, the seven-year-old was attempting to re-enact a scene from a Bad Bunny music video.

Mieses and his cousins were brought to the Robert Reid Cabral Children’s Hospital in Santo Domingo after attempting to recreate a fire scene on the street.

According to Listin Diario’s report, Mieses and his cousins, Angeli Mora and Perla Masiel Mora, 14 and 11 years-old respectfully, retrieved flammable liquids from their parents’ homes and created a circle on the street before setting them on fire. When the liquid ignited they engulfed the kids and trapped Mieses inside.

The seven-year-old suffered second and third degree burns over 60 percent of his body.

According to Andres Nieves, the director of the hospital’s Burn Unit Mieses sustained burns to over 60 percent of his body. In a statement to the press he said “This type of injuries tend to be very delicate for healing, due to the extent and depth of the burns, the destruction of tissues is greater, is very unfortunate.”

The three children attempted to recreate a scene from the Bad Bunny music video La Romana.

The music video debuted earlier last month on April 6 and currently as over 39 million views on Youtube and features El Alfa. Neither he nor Bad Bunny have commented on the tragic incident at this time.

Bad Bunny Defeats The Miz, Announces U.S. Tour Dates at WWE Wrestlemania

Bad Bunny made all his dreams come true this weekend at Wrestlemania. The Puerto Rican superstar defeated his WWE rival The Miz and announced a U.S. tour.

Bad Bunny and The Miz finally faced off in the ring.

Bad Bunny made his Wrestlemania debut on Saturday night. After the past few months of a growing rivalry with Mike “The Miz” Mizanin, the two took it to the ring in a main event match. Benito walked out to his song “Booker T,” an homage to the WWE legend. It was exciting to hear the announcer say, “From Vega Baja, Puerto Rico: Bad Bunny!” Benito teamed up with Damien Priest against The Miz and John Morrison. After a few high-flying moves, the Boricua duo emerged victorious.

Like many wrestling fans, The Miz was impressed by Bad Bunny’s Wrestlemania debut.

The WWE caught up with The Miz and Morrison after their defeat. The Miz echoed much of the WWE fandom’s thoughts that night after seeing Bad Bunny commit to his performance in the ring. “I can’t believe I’m actually going to say this, but he gained my respect,” The Miz said. Morrison made a bad pun after saying there was a “luck factor” involved because “rabbits are lucky.”

Triple H helped Bad Bunny announce his 2022 U.S. tour.

During night two of Wrestlemania, Bad Bunny dropped his surprise announcement of his 2022 U.S. Tour. In the clip, WWE legend Triple H thanks Benito for his “amazing” job at Wrestlemania and then passes him a suitcase. While sitting on top of his El Último Tour Del Mundo big rig, Bad Bunny finds a microphone inside of the suitcase.

Bad Bunny’s U.S. Tour will kick off on Feb. 9 in Denver. From dates revealed so far, the tour will run until April 2022. The tickets go on-sale on Friday, April 16, at 12PM local time.
