At least he died doing what he loved: Committing suicide.

Video of the practice jump at the Grant County International Airport posted to social media showed Harvill's motorcycle running directly into the top edge of the large dirt berm being used as his landing ramp, with Harvill thrown from the bike.

.....

"Coroner Morrison's staff will conduct an autopsy on Friday to confirm the cause and manner of death, which is normal procedure," the Grant County Sheriff's Office said.


I'm going to bet massive trauma based on sudden deceleration.

I'm not really sure why they bother doing autopsy on people that do this stuff.

"Well. It turns out that he didn't make the jump. He was definitely alive minutes after numerous bones splintered and pierced his internal organs. His liver and lungs had massive contusions. Probably was drowning a bit in his own blood as people were taking their phones out of photo mode and trying to dial 911.  Dude died ultimately."

Live long enough, something will kill you eventually.

I read that in Spicoli's voice with a LOT of emphasis on ultimately.

If you want to know if someone has a family history of seizures, you should ask "any family history of seizures, epilepsy, weird movements, brain problem?  No?  Ok, what about weird deaths like drownings or car accidents?  Same reasoning goes for if they have a family history of heart problems.

Another example is if an you fall and hits your head, your doctors will ask if you had chest pain, dizziness, shortness of breath etc before falling.  It's not just about treating your busted up head, it's about figuring out why you fell.

Alex has two kids.  If he had a heart attack mid air and that caused him to botch the landing, his (according to TMZ.com) two kids might want to know they have a family history of sudden cardiac problems from their dad at the young age of 28.
