BMX stunt left a man dead near the seawall

A man was declared dead after an apparent stunt gone wrong near the seawall in downtown Vancouver.

It was been confirmed by BC Coroners Service that the man in his 30s died. Two men were performing a stunt near Jack Poole Plaza. The brother of the victim was filming him on his BMX bike attempting a stunt from one platform to another. He fell around 9 meters to the water below.

A bystander jumped from the seawall to the dock which was around a 4-meter drop and broke both of his ankles in an attempt to help the victim. He crawls down the dock and proceeds to pull the man out of the water onto the dock and starts CPR.
