A student died Sunday in Bristol, England after being being flung 100 feet from a catapult. BBC News reports that a 19 year old student, Kostadine Iliev Yankov, was killed Sunday after being launched from a catapult. Yankov sustained injuries when he missed the safety net designed to catch him and later died at a hospital in Bristol. There have been previous injuries in this popular "extreme" activity, but this is the first death. Yankov was a member of the Oxford Stunt Factory sports club. Police are investigating.
