New surveillance video shows the horrifying moment when a Brazilian male model ran over a 16-year-old boy and ripped off part of his leg.
Footage was taken from a condominium across from a beach in Rio de Janeiro’s Barra de Tijuca neighborhood and shows João Cardim crossing the street with his mother Mariana Cardim last Saturday.
João Cardim hurtles onto the sidewalk when Bruno Krupp suddenly slams into the teenager with his motorbike, knocking him off his feet.
Krupp, who doesn’t have a motorcycle license, continues to speed down the street and eventually falls to the ground.

It was an accident, folks,” he said
Krupp, who underwent surgery to repair a broken collarbone, released a recorded video statement from his hospital bed prior to the operation, showing that it was an “accident” on his part and that he was being assisted by Lourenco Jorge’s medical staff during the operation Municipal Hospital was abused He was waiting to be treated.
“I was picked up by the ambulance, I didn’t run away from the hospital, I didn’t run away from the doctors,” Krupp said in Portuguese. “I was dying in the hospital, the staff treated me badly, hit the stretcher in the hallway and called me a murderer like I had done something wrong.”
The model denied rumors that he was impaired while riding a motorcycle.

He bought the bike in May but failed a road test, Brazilian broadcaster TV Globo reported.
Before Krupp had surgery on Wednesday, he told his attorney, William Pena, that the motorcycle brakes failed as he approached Cardim.
“There was no cheating. No one leaves home to kill someone by being run over,” Pena told reporters Thursday. “‘Oh, I’m about to run over someone on the corner.’ There’s a certain exaggeration to everything they release.”
But Krupp is said to have been speeding up and exceeded 90 mph before hitting the teenager.
Security cameras posted at several stores on Avenida Lúcio Costa showed speeding in the left lane.
“He is known, he spends every weekend here. These noisy motorcycles, they fly by here, sometimes they drive by here, and if we look, it’s already far away,” a kiosk worker who saw the accident on Saturday told Globo.
