Stuntman Alex Harvill Dies Attempting World-Record Motorcycle Jump (Video)
Stunt rider Alex Harvill has died from injuries suffered while practising to set a world-record motorcycle jump in Moses Lake, Washington, officials said.
Watch the video below:
Harvill, 28, died Thursday from his wounds, Grant County Coroner Craig Morrison said.
“Our deepest sympathies go out to Alex’s family, friends and loved ones,” Morrison said in a statement.
Harvill was endeavouring to jump more than the length of a football field on his motorcycle during a performance at the Moses Lake Air Show when he crashed.
Footage of the 351-foot jump try seems to show Harvill landing short, crashing into the side of a big dirt mound.
He was taken to the hospital for the treatment his injuries, but later died, officials said.
