Disturbing security footage shows a Brazilian influencer riding a bicycle at high speed before running over and murdering a 16-year-old. Model and influencer Bruno Krupp, 25, was speeding down the street on his Yamaha motorcycle before the fatal collision on Saturday. Joao Gabriel Cardim Guimaraes, 16, was hit by his bicycle while crossing the street with his mother.

According to Globo, the schoolboy’s leg was severed in the collision and thrown onto a grass verge 50 meters away. Krupp had reportedly been traveling at incredible speeds on the unlicensed Yamaha motorcycle.

A video shows Joao’s mother clinging to her only child in horror while Joao lies unconscious in a pool of blood. She sobbed as she held the 16-year-old, who died before help arrived and the tragic video was captured of her. In the hope that he would survive, his amputated leg was placed in a thermos. His grieving aunt, Débora Cardim, added: “My sister is suffering from severe grief. those of us devastated by the death of their only child and only grandson.”

After the fatal clash, Krupp, who was also receiving medical attention for his wounds, was arrested Wednesday morning and charged with first degree murder. He is being held until medical staff release him from the hospital, where he will have surgery on his collarbone.

Krupp’s release “would endanger public order as it constitutes the necessary restriction to prevent the commission of crimes of the same nature,” according to Judge Maria Isabel Pena Pierant.

Krupp, who was moving at over 90 mph, met Joao as he was enjoying a little stroll on the beach before returning to her home after a birthday party with his mother, Mariana Cardim.

The discredited influencer had reportedly been fined for driving without a license just three days before the tragic accident. Krupp was well known around town for riding his gray motorcycle carefree. The kiosk employee who witnessed the incident and spoke to Globo said: “He is well known; he spends every weekend here.” “They’re a long way away when we turn and face those noisy motorbikes. They occasionally fly past this area.”
