Daredevil Alex Harville is dead after crashing his motorcycle while attempting a world-record jump in central Washington.
The Grant County Sheriff's Office says the 28-year-old Ephrata-based stuntman was killed yesterday while doing a practice jump at the Moses Lake Airshow at the Grant County International Airport. Harvill was attempting a jump of 351 feet when he landed short and was thrown from his motorcycle.
Video shows him landing short of the top of a large, sloping dirt mound and getting thrown from his Suzuki 450. Witnesses said his helmet flew off as he tumbled. A coroner is set to conduct an autopsy Friday to determine the cause of death, KIMA reported.
Havrill was taken to a hospital, where he died.
Warning - this is the video of the jump and his crash- and it's very heavy. So sad.
