A Brazilian model and influencer has been arrested after he drove his motorcycle into a 16-year-old boy so fast that his leg was torn off and thrown 50 yards into the air.

Bruno Krupp, 25, allegedly killed Joao Gabriel Cardim Guimaraes, 16, after he hit the boy whilst driving at high speed on his Yamaha motorbike in Barra da Tijuca, west of Rio de Janeiro. 

Joao was walking across a street with his mother when Krupp crashed into the schoolboy on Saturday.     

Krupp was driving at such a speed that Joao’s leg was torn off on impact and thrown into air, with his leg landing 50 yards away on some grass next to the road, reports Globo

Joao’s mother watched in horror as her son, her only child, lost consciousness. Video shows the grief-stricken parent crying and hugging her son’s body as he lay in a pool of blood.

The boy was rushed to Lourenço Jorge hospital in Barra da Tijuca in an ambulance but he died soon after arriving. 

‘My sister is wracked with grief. We all too. Destroyed by the loss of their only grandchild, their only child’, the boy’s aunt Débora Cardim told Globo. 

Krupp, who was also treated in hospital following the collision, was arrested this morning for murder with eventual intent. 

The influencer, who must undergo clavicle surgery, will remain in custody at the hospital until he is released by doctors.  

Krupp had been riding his Yamaha motorbike without a licence or licence plate at a high speed when he hit Joao

Joao’s leg was torn off on impact, with the leg landing 50 yards away. Medics placed his leg into an ice box to be preserved – but Joao died shortly after arriving at the hospital. 

‘He is known, every weekend he spends here. Those noisy motorcycles, they fly by here, sometimes they pass by here, and when we look at it, it’s already far away’, a kiosk worker who saw the accident on Saturday, told Globo.
