Tragic tourist’s chilling last video of picturesque zipline before plunging to his death in horror fall from ride | The Sun
THESE are the chilling last images a man captured of a picturesque zipline before he plunged to his death in a horror fall.
Sergio Murilo de Lima Santana, 39, has been named as the man who died when a zipline in Brazil snapped on Monday, sending him crashing to the ground.
Sergio was on holiday in Ceará when he filmed another tourist happily riding the same line not long before he did.
The clip shows how the long zipline spans across the beach, and a woman can be seen riding down, over some water, on a breezy afternoon.
Sergio, who was from the Brazillian state of Pará, had been travelling around with his partner for six days before tragedy struck.
After the fall, emergency services rushed to Sergio's aid and while he was taken to hospital, he was pronounced dead on arrival.
