The death of Indian stuntman Sailendra Nath Roy.


Village Sponsor
On 28th April 2013 Indian stuntman Sailendra Nath Roy attempted to zipline the Teesta River in India using his ponytail.

Previously he had pulled a Darjeeling Himalayan Railway locomotive with his ponytail in north Bengal for 2.5 metres (8.2 feet) in the town of Siliguri, West Bengal.

Unfortunately during the zipline stunt, his hair got stuck in the wheeler of the rope halfway across the river!

He was left hanging in midair for over 1 hour. It was later reported that he suffered a massive heart attack from the strain. He was 49 years old. May his soul RIP.
