AceShowbiz - Rapper Jon James McMurray has died in a video plane stunt.
The 34-year-old, who is also a well known stuntman, fell to his death in British Columbia on Saturday, October 20, while filming a promo, in which he was walking on the wing of a plane.
"As Jon got further out onto the wing of the plane, it caused the small Cessna to go into a downward spiral that the pilot couldn't correct," a statement reads. "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."
