Canadian rapper Jon James McMurray dies in airplane stunt

A Canadian rapper has died while filming a music video in which he attempted to rap while walking along the wing of a small plane mid-flight.

McMurray had been working on this project for "months", with his team noting he trained "intensely for the stunt". 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", a statement from his management explains [via the Canadian Press]. He died on impact. A statement released by his team stated that Jon had a passion to perform stunts that were in an entirely new direction. British Columbia officials are now investigating McMurray's death and the stunt. He was 34 years old.

Canadian Music artist Jon James McMurray has died performing an airplane stunt in Vernon, BC, on October 20 2018 just outside the town of West Wold between Vernon and Kamloops.

McMurray, who was based in Los Angeles, was a former professional skier who switched to music after suffering career-ending injuries including a broken back and shattered heel.

Gruden was unavailable for comment on Friday but just last week was asked about Martin (27 carries for 99 yards) and his lack of work.

Sources close to the rapper explained, "Jon was really a good person and he would want to be remembered as someone who promoted each and every individual to pursue their dreams".

An investigation by a coroner and the Transportation Safety Board of Canada is ongoing.

Jon left behind his wife, Kali James, and his parents Jen McMurray, as well as Doug McMurray, and his brother, Jared. "It's one of those things".

"Life is short, we all know that".

They said Jon was part of a team filming plane and parachuting stunts and that no one else was injured. "He's inspired us so much and will forever".
