Yesterday the death of brave stuntman Todd Green was reported HERE. After watching the video closely and in slow-motion it is now suspected that the cause of the tumbling of Todd Green might be that big bird passing very closely when Green was trying to cling onto the skid of helicopter in his third attempt.
|The Big Bird Might Cause the Distraction Ended Up With Death of Todd Green |
The video does not show clearly whether the bird struck Green or either aircraft, but could raise questions about whether it caused a split-second distraction which proved to be deadly in this specific case.
Todd Green was certainly one of a few stuntmen in the world brave enough to walk on the wing of a plane; but ill-fated moment was chasing him on Sunday at Selfridge Air National Guard Base as about 75,000 people looked on.
According to witnesses; Green seemed well-balanced on a wing of a plane until he fell trying to clutch a helicopter's skid on his third attempt.
Just moments after an commentator took note of the wind, Green tumbled from a wing when he was unable to cling onto the helicopter as part of a trick he had been doing for years.
