Is this an escape gone terribly bad? I wonder too, in this day and age, if it could be a not so tasteful publicity stunt. I really hope for the latter.

I saw a follow up article on my newsfeed that said divers were not able to locate a body.

The truly sad part is people still do these stunts and subject the audience to watching a public suicide.

Roughly what percent of these shows lead to actual injury (or worse) for the performer?

(back in a few after I type a little note to someone on facebook who's out in that part of the world to pass on some condolences)
