Take another look at the sentence:

A dangerous stunt, Franklin flew over the steep staircase, his skateboard landing with a loud clack-clack on the concrete below.

A dangerous stunt, a noun phrase, is right next to Franklin, an illogical target. Franklin himself isn't the dangerous stunt. Jumping the staircase on a skateboard is!

Before you continue, review the rules for misplaced and dangling modifiers.
