Arturo Ascanio


He didn't die while performing. He died at his place and he was practicing, so it's commonly said that "Arturo de Ascanio died with a deck in his hands".

But he wasn't in a performance. Actually he wasn't much of a performer. Lots more of a theorist.

A Greek illusionist was decapitated when the blade of his buzz saw broke loose in the back of his truck.
The number of teen age magicians who drown practicing underwater escapes keep growing, along with the number of magicians and strippers who are chocked on stage by boas and pythons who throw a second coil around their necks, while the audience thinks it all part of the act.
Bullet catching still reduces the heard on a regular basis.
The newest stupidity is the dagger stunt, which an be harmless if you do it right.
Dean Martin, that Dean Martin, had his hands broken while doing some real work for some hard guys.
Less than 2% of reported UFO's turn out to be actual interplanetary vehicles.

From "Magic Seen" March 2018
MAGICIANS WHO GAVE EVERYTHING
#1 'Karr'
Professionally known as Karr the Mysterious South African escape artiest Charles Rowan died during a daredevil escape attempt in 1930.
A ghastly death befell a traveling magician named Karr, when his often repeated stunt of allowing himself to be strapped in a straight jacket and charged by a motorcar failed.
A large crowd including numerous small children ... saw a car smash into Karr and kill him. He was struck by the right wheel which almost severed one of his legs.
