Daredevil killed trying to jump over 22 buses

? An Iranian daredevil died while attempting to break the world record for jumping over buses on a motorcycle, state television reported Saturday.

Javad Palizbanian, 44, was trying to leap over 22 buses parked side-by-side when his motorbike came down on the 13th bus, the report said. He died instantly.

State TV broadcast the start of Palizbanian’s attempt in Azadi Sports stadium Friday, but then cut away when the accident occurred.

“The crash scene was too disturbing to show publicly,” the newscaster said.

Palizbanian was well known in Iran for his motorbike stunts. Last month, he roared his bike over a river more than 50 yards wide.
