    Record-Holding Ponytail Zip Liner Dies Repeating Stunt

    The man who held the Guinness World Record for traveling the farthest distance on a zip line while attached by his hair has died.

    Indian man Sailendra Nath Roy suffered a heart attack on Sunday while suspended from the 600-foot long, 70 foot-high zip wire over the Teesta river in West Bengal, the BBC reported. He was attempting to break his own record.

    "He was desperately trying to move forward," photographer Balai Sutradhar said, according to the Independent. "He was trying to scream out some instruction. But no one could follow what he was saying. After struggling for 30 minutes he became still."

    Roy was hanging by his ponytail for around 45 minutes before he was brought down. Doctors pronounced him dead on arrival at the hospital.

    Guinness should publish a book listing all the people who have died trying to break their records.

    Then parents have a handy reference book to pull out each time their kid comes up with some stupid record breaking idea.
