Daniel Fernandez and his teen pals tweeted up a storm before and after he was killed by a highway overpass when he poked his head out a top hatch of a double-decker party bus.
The story came out in the surreal style of the digital era: in messages of no more than 140 characters.
The crowd of 65, including many from a Queens Catholic high school in New Jersey, was gearing up for a wild Friday night, tweeting about getting “sauced” at a friend’s Sweet 16 party at a catering hall in Garfield, NJ.
Hours before, Fernandez, 16, about to begin his junior year at St. Francis Prep in Fresh Meadows, asked a pal over Twitter: “Are they checking on the bus??”
“Yeah be careful brooooski,” she warned back to Fernandez, whose handle was DanMotherf--ker.
Friends posted pictures of party girls in blue dresses. One kid bragged, “The amount of bottles on this limo is rediculous.”
When tragedy struck at about 6:45 p.m., classmates tweeted their panic — and their friends responded in disbelief.
“Did something happen to Dan or are you all being d--ks,” his friend Tay said. “Please pray for him,” said a pal, Vicky, via her handle @VBudz. “This isn’t a joke.”
Vicky, heartbroken, later tweeted: “Sitting here with your blood on my foot wishing this was all a bad dream. I love you so much dan you were there for me till the last second.”
