Ponytail stunt death: Indian stuntman dies hanging on a wire with his ponytail

Ponytail stunt death: Indian stuntman dies hanging on a wire with his ponytail, The Guinness Book of World Records is full of individuals who have put their lives at risk in order to gain notoriety as the ‘best.’

An Indian man named Sailendra Nath Roy, who already holds a Guinness World Record for the category of ‘traveling the farthest distance on a zip wire attached to hair’ died Sunday after trying to recreate the stunt, according to a One News Page report from April 29.

Roy was performing the feat in front of spectators over the Teesta River in West Bengal Sunday. He was suspended from a 180-meter-long zip wire at a height of 20 meters.

Witnesses say that Roy had progressed about halfway across the wire, but suddenly began to struggle and was unable to go any further. After a few moments, he went still.

It took approximately 45 minutes to bring Roy down from the wire. No emergency personnel were standing by for his stunt.

The 48-year-old daredevil was pronounced dead at the hospital with doctors saying he suffered a massive heart attack.

Roy received his Guinness World Record in March 2011. He also made headlines for pulling the Darjeeling toy train with his hair.
