British ex-SAS hero, Freediver, and Stuntman Steve Truglia has died in a tragic abseiling accident in China whilst performing a stunt.
Truglia was known in the British Freediving community for being the first person to set a No-Limits (NLT) British Record to 76m in 2002. He also trained with the late French Freediver Loic Leferme and Cuban Pipin Ferraras.
As part of his stunt career, he had appeared in a number of James Bond films including Tomorrow Never Dies and the World Is Not Enough.
Details surrounding his death are still not clear, but it seems that there were concerns about the rope and helicopter being used on the stunt.
