Mom punches skateboarder

Professional skateboarder Leland Goldberg was at a skatepark shooting a segment for “Warm Gravy”—a pro skateboarding mixtape—when a child running through the area ended up directly in his path.

Concentrating on his tricks, Goldberg didn’t notice the child until the last instant, and the two collided. The child began crying and was scooped up by a woman.

The situation is awkward but nonviolent—that is, until the boy’s mother finally shows up on the scene.

    ok was an accident and she was a poor excuse for a mother anyway and was not watching her son either….so she isn't any better….yes the boy could have been hurt but now the dumb bitch will have charges on her for hitting him….smart move….should have been a little more worried about your son and a possible head fracture or concusion…but not u have to belt the guy….instead….2 strikes mom…your out….

    I couldn't agree more with Stephanie. What does she think happens in a skate park? She could lose her child for neglect and acting the way she did in front of him. Leland will most likely be cool about it and not press charges but I'd have here lickin' my wheels and tail bone. I hope the poor kid is ok. More scared than anything. Leland reacted the best he could and was able to pull up just in time to keep from really running him over.

    BleacherReport has it totally wrong. The accident does NOT happen at a skate park. It happens on a sidewalk next to Burbank Elementary School in Hayward CA. You can see exactly where the accident happens on Google StreetView in the link below.
