An Indian man Sailendra Nath Roy has died while attempting a world record stunt with his ponytail.
The popular Indian who is already a Guiness Book of World Records holder was attempting to cross the Teesta river in West Bengal while only being suspended by his ponytail. He suffered a massive heart attack during the process.
Mr Roy, who worked as a driver for the police, appeared to make it halfway across the 180 metre crossing when he suddenly stopped.
It then took local police 45 minutes to get him down from the wire.
Doctors later revealed he had suffered a “massive heart attack” while attempting the stunt.
Photographer Balai Sutradhar, who turned up with hundreds to witness the record attempt, said: “He was desperately trying to move forward. 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.”
He was wearing a life jacket but there were no doctors or emergency services on the spot.
In 2008 Mr Roy pulled a train with his ponytail and in 2007 he flew from one building to another attached by his hair.
