Indian stuntman dies during world record Atempt

 Tragic: Stuntman Sailendra Nath Roy, pictured on the slide before he died, suffered a heart attack after getting stuck part-way through his feat
A stuntman died yesterday during a world record attempt as he tried to cross a river on a zip-wire attached only to his hair.

Sailendra Nath Roy, 50, was half way through the stunt when his ponytail became stuck in the wheeler of the rope and he was left hanging in mid-air for about 25 minutes.

Despite desperate attempts to free himself, it is believed Mr Roy then suffered a major cardiac arrest and died.

According to DailyMail News

Mr Roy, a West Bengal Police home guard, already held the Guinness world record for the farthest distance travelled on a zip wire using his hair.

Mr Roy attempted to free himself after his ponytail became caught in the wheeler and then tried to continue the crossing using only his hands.

However, local media said he then suffered a massive cardiac arrest.

Rescuers brought him down from the Coronation Bridge about 45 minutes later.

He was taken to a nearby hospital but was declared dead on arrival.
