Daredevil Dies Attempting World Record

gulfnews.com

A daredevil in India, attempting to get into the Guinness Book of World Records, recently died during his attempt. Sailendra Nath Roy was trying to cross the River Teesta on a zip-line, which spans 180 yards over the river, attached by his ponytail to a pulley on the wire.  Hundreds of people were on hand to watch the event, but halfway through something went wrong.

Roy became entangled about halfway through the stunt and couldn’t move forward or backwards. He tried to reach a second rope to reach the finish point, but he panicked and couldn’t reach it. After about 20 minutes of trying, he suddenly stopped moving. Villagers finally were able to rescue Roy and he was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead of an apparent heart attack.
