From the Local:

A Swedish musician fell 20 metres to his death during a performance at a Leipzig street festival over the weekend.

The man, Finn Martin, was supposed to use a rope to help him vertically slide down the façade of a building while playing a saxophone before dozens of cheering fans late Friday evening.

But during the attempt, the harness apparently broke and Martin plunged to his death before the shocked audience.

“He was a world-class artists, one of the top-ten saxophone players in the world, but almost unknown in Sweden,” Martin’s cousin Peter Martin, told the Aftonbladet newspaper.

That totally sucks. Never, ever do anything like this people. Ever. And Peter Martin……never heard of your cousin. He is not in the top-ten list….except maybe for a Darwin Award.
