Wheelie bad! Thai man fails at moped trick and falls in pond

This bungling moped rider pulled a wheelie - only to fall sideways into a pond.

The man was doing the stunt along a field in Nakhon Ratchasima, northeastern Thailand on May 5.

But after removing his right leg, he veered to left and went crashing into the water.

The rider's friend captured the scene on his phone camera, though he refused to say if his friend had deliberately plunged into the water.

He said: ''He likes to do wheelies on his motorcycle and he's always showing off.''
