April 29, 2013 – Indian Stuntman Sailendra Nath Roy Dies Trying To Break World Record With Hair Attached To Rope
A popular Indian stuntman and Guinness world record holder, Sailendra Nath Roy has died. He met his untimely death few hours ago during a stunt gone wrong episode over Teesta River in Darjeeling, India.
Roy’s hair got caught halfway and he could not move. Roy started screaming as he tried to inch forward, according to witnesses.
“Roy tried frantically to get hold of a second rope to reach the finishing point,” police officer K. Jayaraman told the AFP news agency.
After around 20 minutes of struggle, he went limp and was rescued by local people. He was declared dead by a suspected heart attack when he was sent to a hospital 280 miles away.
