Suspension trauma?

I'm not sure what dynamics are involved with hanging off a flying fox by your hair but whatever they are they may not be good for your health;

Thoughts for the poor blokes family.

Doesn't sound like his death was from suspension trauma, but whatever the cause, that is one very strange stunt.

I wonder if he carried a knife in his pocket for just this kind of emergency. Seems like that would have been the easiest way to free himself.

I would have thought it was a pretty good idea not to hang by your hair in the first place: no need to cut yourself loose....

Pretty hairy stunt.

It may not have jammed if he used the fencing wire technique instead?

I agree that it would certainly have been rough on his family, particularly those watching at the time...
