Stunts That Sadly Cost People Their Lives

Stunts That Sadly Cost People Their Lives
Spread The Viralist

Some people never stop chasing the adrenaline rush that only comes from pushing the envelope in a major way – and unfortunately, the risk is sometimes far greater than the reward. Here’s a look at daredevils who tragically lost their lives doing insane stunts.

The human capacity for dreaming up bizarre stunts is perhaps only surpassed by the public’s desire to watch people do bizarre stunts, which has proven to be a pretty lethal combo. In October 2017, Malaysian magician Lim Ba attempted a stunt which involved him sitting inside a giant wok with some rice and sweet corn.

Lim had been performing this particular stunt for more than a decade, and held a record of 75 minutes within the larger-than-life wok. However, the magician was also approaching 70, receiving treatment for high blood pressure, and had recently undergone a heart bypass. Needless to say, he wasn’t in peak physical condition at the time of his death.

About 30 minutes into the performance, Lim started knocking on the inside of the wok. Upon removing the cover, onlookers found him unconscious – and by the time medical personnel arrived to the scene, Lim had passed away. The official cause of death was a heart attack, though police noted that the performer also suffered second-degree burns.

  1. When I was little our family went to Niagara Falls, Canada side and a man was sitting on a rail taking a picture with his family when he fell backwards. Some other guy grabbed him & he was pulled in safely thankfully. People can be so fearless and not in a smart way either

  2. Horses are beautiful animals . But they are also incredibly strong and easily frightened if not trained properly. Be careful with them. They will serve you and be your friend be kind to them. this is why I hate jockey riding

  3. Not sad or tragic. We all die, and usually it's in some miserable state of pain even if it's in a hospital or it's when you're not expecting it or you're some innocent bystander victim. These people knowingly chose to do something where they accepted the risks along with the benefits (ie thrills) and then died doing something they loved. Good for them!

  4. Is a lamp bought to be put under a basket or under a bed? is it not to be set on a lamp stand? for there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light.

  5. On the first one, with the 70 year old cooking himself in a pot, it took all that time for medical to get there, my question is, y wasn’t medical there to begin with?

  6. Its all fun until you get hurt bad . That hurts alot , coming from a guy with work i juries , of crushed vertebrates and disks , 2 perminate steel rods ( roof fall off of ) crushed knee , steel plate with accompanying wierd screws
    ( blind truck driving coworker) . Broke ribs , motorcycle .. no jumping climbing etc . No thank you

  7. "Tragedies that happen during fatal stunts are no less tragic than other accidents". Oh except is it considered an "accident" when you accomplished your exact goal?

  8. I have zero empathy or compassion for attention seekers that lose their lives. Hey you wanted to be famous, now you're on a youtube video!! Great job!! ( Owen should not be on this list)

  9. There is a difference between the devil bullying you to a dangerous cliff ….and extrem sports ……you could perform difficult stunts….. But should not risk your life for a stunt that would never bring ultimate satisfaction……..whereas the devil waiting for you on the other side with high hopes…..
