Man Buried Alive Dies During World Record Attempt




A Sri Lankan man has died while trying to set a record for the longest time spent buried alive.

Police said Janaka Basnayake, 24, buried himself over the weekend with the help of family and friends in a trench sealed with wood and soil in the town of Kantale, about 220kilometres north of Sri Lanka's capital, Colombo. A local newspaper reported that the trench was three metres deep.

Basnayake was buried about 9.30am on Saturday. Police said when he was brought to the surface at 4pm, he was unconscious and was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Dr D G Costa of the Kantale hospital said a post-mortem examination could not determine the cause of death and further medical investigations are being conducted.

Basnayake's mother, L D Leelawathi, said her son had enjoyed performing unusual acts since his childhood - a liking that grew after watching movies, the Lankadeepa newspaper reported.

It quoted her as saying that her son had been buried alive on two previous occasions - for two-and-a-half hours and six hours respectively.

It was unclear whether there is an official world record for the longest time buried alive.

Police said Basnayake was a member of the Civil Defence Force, a police unit that fought in the country's 25-year civil war.

What an ass!

We had a guy in WV, who survived a mining disaster. I forget how many days he was buried

There were also a group of miners, although I can't recall what country they were from, who survived a month, or almost a month. Must have reeked when they came out!

"It was unclear whether there was a world record for the longest time buried alive." Really? Dumb ass should have submitted it to whomever you submit records to for the six hours and played it by ear from there!

Curiosity killed the cat and this guy!
