GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A Davenport University graduate who attempted a back flip on stage during a graduation ceremony on Sunday fell short on Sunday, and it was all captured on video.

Davenport University held their annual graduation at Van Andel Arena Sunday afternoon.

Robert Jeffrey Blank was a little excited about his big day. After shaking hands with Davenport University President Richard Pappas, Blank attempted a back flip on stage.

Unfortunately, he couldn't complete the flip and he face planted on stage.

Blank was uninjured and was able to laugh off the flip fail.
