#7 A Charity Stunt Gone Horribly Wrong
This photo is especially sad because Robert Overacker was performing his dangerous stunt to raise awareness about a local homelessness problem. Overacker’s plan was to jet ski over Niagara Falls, open his parachute, and glide down to the water below. After exiting the jet ski his parachute failed to open and he plummeted to his death seconds later. Look closely and you can see him attempting to pull the string that should have opened his parachute.
