Wagner college basketball player Josh Thompson wanted to do something memorable in the dunk contest held during his school's Midnight Madness event last Friday night.

So the six-foot-five forward lined his mom up in front of the basket, with her back facing him, and then jumped over her on his way to completing a slam dunk.

As you can see in the video below, Wagner just barely clears his mom's head on the way up, and the woman who brought him into the world walks away from the stunt looking a bit shell-shocked.
