Fortnite streamer Elliot ‘Muselk’ Watkins spotted a player outside the limits of the map during a match and attempted to rescue them; what followed was a series of events showing off the best Fortnite has to offer.
The clip starts with Muselk fighting someone near the edge of the map, unaware of what they were doing there.
He wins the battle, but notices the player’s ATK dangling close to a cliff leading out of bounds. While inspecting the situation, Muselk sees the reason for the kart and player he fought being so close to the edge.
There is another player that fell off of the ledge, but survived. Muselk spots an opportunity to be a good Samaritan and tries to help the fallen player.

The rescue mission went terribly, with Muselk accidentally killing the player he tried to save by running him over with the ATK after falling down uncontrollably.
The hilarious slapstick moment after all that work was worth a clip on its own, however, the player’s death may not have been an accident.
Chappadoodle, the trapped player who was run over, told his side of the story on reddit – leading to a legendary tale of sacrifice in Fortnite
When he saw the ATK plummeting towards him, Chappadoodle knew the kart was going to roll right into the ocean, killing Muselk during the daring rescue attempt.
Chappadoodle actually jumped in front of the ATK to stop it from rolling and was sent into the ocean himself, saving Muselks life.
Muselk started off trying to save Chappadoodle, but instead it was Chappadoodle who saved Muselk in the end. Take whatever moral lesson you’d like out of this one.
