Being lowered into a grave.
Janaka Basnayake tried to pull a Houdini and, sadly, died. He was trying to set a record for the longest time buried alive and did it with the help of family and friends. When he emerged after 6 and a half hours he was unconscious and later passed away. It seems that there isn’t really a recorded record for this act anyways, as perhaps there shouldn’t be.
A Sri Lankan man has died while trying to set a record for the longest time spent buried alive, police say.
Janaka Basnayake, 24, is said to have buried himself over the weekend with the help of family and friends in a trench sealed with wood and soil in the town of Kantale, about 137 miles (220km) north of Sri Lanka’s capital, Colombo. A local newspaper reported that the trench was three metres deep. (Guardian: Sri Lankan man dies trying to break record for longest time buried alive)
I would say pauw, but that’s bullshit. He liked testing limits and he liked burying himself alive. He just wasn’t Houdini, he was Janaka Basnayake and now he’s dead. Sorry to hear.
