The summary:  A 23 year old unidentified British man has died performing the human cannonball stunt as part of “Scott May’s Daredevil Stunt Show” when his safety net gave way.

The reaction:  Everybody assumes these kind of stunts are very dangerous and there is a degree of risk involved in doing this obviously but for the most part the shows do a good job of taking all necessary safety precautions.  I think this is just an unfortunate accident where the stunt man was in the wrong situation at the wrong time.

The stunt show is closed until further notice.
