Daredevil falls to his death from 62-story building

A tragedy for sure, but he only fell 45 feet, not 62 stories as the article title implies. I followed links to the actual video of the fall. It looks like he was trying to pull himself back up and couldn't do it. If he had had a "spotter" above him, this tragedy could have been avoided. What a shame.

Except that this planet is over populated already so losing a few dare devils and other ies works out in the end...

I just read a few more details about his motivation for this stunt:
Quote:
According to his uncle, he was going to propose to his girlfriend the day after the stunt.

There was a $15,000 prize for completing the stunt that would help fund their wedding and pay for treatment for his sick mother.

I have been married three times. Perhaps this worked out for the best.
