A Daredevil On A Motorcycle Crashes To His Death During A Record-jump Practice Attempt.



According to multiple outlets, stuntman Alex Harvill died Thursday after crashing his motorcycle during a practice run for a record-jump attempt. He was 28 years old.

Harvill took off from a ramp at Grant County International Airport in Washington state, preparing for an official attempt to break the established record of 351 feet at the Moses Lake Airshow, but he came up short and landed in a mound of dirt.

According to TMZ, who obtained video of the incident, Harvill fell over his handlebars and died as a result of his injuries, which were confirmed by the Grant County Sheriff's Office.

“Our heartfelt condolences go out to Alex’s family, friends, and loved ones,” the office said in a statement.

People reported that Harvill is survived by his wife and two sons, one of whom is four weeks old.

Harvill holds the record for the longest dirt-to-dirt motorcycle ramp jump, at 297 feet, 6.6 inches, according to Guinness World Records, which he accomplished in 2013.
