A Legend Dies

Legendary US daredevil Evel Knievel has died at the age of 69 , he had suffered ill-health, including diabetes and an incurable lung condition and had a liver transplant for hepatitis C in 1999, apart from that he was in perfect health.

Famous for his death-defying stunts in the 1960s and 70s, including an attempted motorcycle jump over Snake River Canyon in Idaho. Knievel slipped in the bath tub and hit his head while attempting the death-defying washing under the ball sack in his Montana home.

I wonder how many people will be crawling round the attic this weekend looking for their Evel Knievel Dare Devil Stunt Set and how many of them will appear on ebay!
