Human Cannonball Dies During Stunt After Safety Net Fails

Only 23 years old.

A human cannonball has died after his safety net failed to launch during a stunt in UK's Kent County. The man was performing in a daredevil show.

Sky News reports:

The accident happened during a show put on by Scott May's Daredevil Stunt Show at the Kent County Showground in Detling at about 3.30pm on Monday.

The 23-year-old man was flown by air ambulance to Maidstone Hospital, but later died from his injuries.

A Kent Police spokesman said: "A man taking part in a human cannonball event this afternoon has died after it is believed a safety net failed to engage.".

Needless to say, all further Scott May daredevil shows have been canceled. The Scott May website announced:

DUE TO UNFORSEEN CIRCUMSTANCES

THE SHOWS ARE CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
