Michelle Guthrie, of Paulding, is mourning the loss of her 16-year-old son Alex Desalins, who died after he fell off the hood of his friend's Jeep.
"It wasn't a car-surfing adventure," Kenneth Guthrie told WTSP.
"It was him climbing on the hood of the car, on all fours, more than likely being funny, trying to get a laugh by twerking."
"It was instantaneous," Guthrie told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "He felt no pain."
The tragic incident occurred when Alex jokingly asked a friend for a ride to a cemetery down the street.
Alex was twerking on the hood of the Jeep when he lost his balance and fell under the vehicle's wheels.
Alex suffered traumatic brain injuries and two collapsed lungs.
His mother took him off life support on Sunday. She said she doesn't want the Jeep's 16-year-old driver to face charges.
"It was an accident," she told WTSP. "We feel more bad for the family -- for what they're going through as well."
Alex's Facebook friends indicated he was openly gay, and he was friendly to everyone he met. The teenager was studying cosmetology to be a hairstylist.
"He was a friend to all and gave great fashion advice," Alex's cousin wrote on a YouCaring page she set up to raise funds for his funeral expenses.
