Looks like something Russians would do. I remember reading about their WW2 experiments with airborne troops deployment without parachutes (didn't have enough) with airplanes flying low over fields. They expected 40-50% to be combat ready and gave up when the result was about 25% with the other 75% being either dead or wounded. The fact that they were ok with 50-60% being dead or wounded speaks volumes of their dedication to health and safety. Just watch Russian roads on youtube. Some of the stuff there makes this zorbing look like a reasonable thing to do.

yeah, laughing was probably not the right response.

I possibly should have read the video title before I watched it, there was a hint in there that it wasnt a happy ever after ending. However isn't it a bit sick to post the video that resulted in someones death? ( yes it's sicker to laugh at it- but, If they had both been fine it would have been funny and i didnt realise someone died as a result.) It had elements of Only Fools and Horses - the one where Delboy is on the jetski and heads out to sea about it.

woah, slow down there. I merely provided a link to something out there in the wild internets with a clearly visible title.
as for laughing at death, **** it why not, death by misadventure is at least an ok way to go in my book and if your into zorbing you probably have sense of humour

You've changed.

It used to be about the love, the little kittens, the caring.

Now you laugh at death.

UNBELIEVABLE.

Why not laugh, it would be stranger to be upset or sad for the death of some random zorb-er.

**** it his death provided a few seconds of laughter for people round the world.
