    15-Year-Old Boy Dies in His Sleep After 'Surfing' on Roof of an Uber — Leading to Driver's Arrest

    A New York Uber driver is accused of manslaughter after three teenage passengers who’d been drinking allegedly paid him to let them climb onto the roof of his moving car — and then one of them fell off and died, PEOPLE confirms.

    The driver, 24-year-old Danyal Cheema, of Huntington Station, was charged Monday with second-degree manslaughter in the death of 15-year-old Ryan Mullen, of the Cold Spring Harbor area.

    In the incident shortly after midnight on Sept. 23, Cheema was behind the wheel of his 2010 Toyota Highlander as an Uber driver when he picked up the three teen boys in Huntington, after they had been drinking, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office.

    On the way to their destination, the boys allegedly offered Cheema $70 cash — and gave him $40 — if he’d let them climb onto the car’s roof at an intersection so they could “car surf” as the vehicle took off, the investigation revealed.

    Mullen and a second teen then remained on the roof as Cheema drove along Cove Road, with the third boy recording them in a Snapchat video.

    Mullen’s subsequent fall led to head trauma “which resulted in his death,” according to the prosecutor’s office. Although Cheema brought all three boys to their destination at a home in Huntington, Mullen “succumbed to his injuries in his sleep later that day,” the prosecutor’s office said.


    Yes this is very unfortunate, but I also think we are lucky to have removed this from the gene pool.
    Apologies for this post, but I am in a foul mood after all this election crap.

    What’s the problem?

    The TEENS were out partying and DRINKING. They did something stupid and paid the price. Seems like they rolled the dice and came up snake eyes.
