Whilst sad for his family you have to wonder at what point in life you decide that becoming a human cannoball would be a good idea.....

The video is just the news report. not very interesting. plenty of old clips of the same stunt on youtube though. the stuntman barely goes higher than the end of the cannon...not exciting at all.

i agree with millhouse and welivehere - what is the point of this kind of thing?

It will be an interesting law suit. Volenti non fit injuria versus an apparently faulty net.
