Rapper dies in airplane stunt gone wrong

Rapper Jon James McMurray died Saturday after attempting to perform a stunt on an airplane for a music video.

Jon James McMurray, 33, had trained for months to perform the stunt, his management team told CBC News. The rapper was attempting to walk onto the wing of Cessna while the aircraft was flying but “walked to too far out on the wing and sent the aircraft into a downward spiral.”

Jon held onto the wing until it was too late, and by the time he let go, he didn't have time to pull his chute. He impacted and died instantly,” McMurray’s management team said in a statement.

His body was found in a field in Westwold, northwest of Vernon, CBC News reported. No other passengers in the plane were injured.

McMurray, who was born in Calgary, was known for incorporating stunts into his music videos.
