According to iFeng.com, a man in white shirt was targeted in a wedding prank in Dongying, Shandong Province, on October 8.
The prank, known as ‘Da Hang’, is said to be a popular wedding prank games to entertain the newlyweds and guests in some rural areas in China.
During the supposed prank, wedding guests imitate the action of piling on construction sites. They are supposed to lift the best man or the bridesmaid up before striking them onto a mattress.
The video clip shows about six male wedding guests holding the best man’s limbs and lifting him up before dropping him down. They had not put a mattress on the ground, so the best man hit the floor directly.

However, his head hit the ground hard first.
The man lost his conscious for a while after the hit.
He was taken to the hospital and was found to sustain a concussion.
