LONDON (Reuters) - British police charged two men with manslaughter Tuesday following the death of an Oxford University student who was flung from a giant catapult.
Bulgarian Konstadin Yankov, 19, died last November when the stunt near the West Country town of Bridgewater went wrong.
"He had been thrown by a replica medieval catapult and failed to reach the landing net," said a police spokeswoman.
Yankov was on an outing with the Oxford Stunt Factory, an unofficial club at Oxford University where he was studying biochemistry. He had been the sixth person that day to be launched from the "trebuchet" catapult.
Organizers said at the time Yankov had been properly weighed and that the machine had been correctly calibrated before he was fired in a 30-yard arc. They did not know what had gone wrong.
flunging is cool. used to watch things flung in my all time fav tv show "northern exposure", see //flung stuff. i watched the show even nazigesynchroniseerd when the dutch tv didnt broadcast the serie anymore: ausgerechnet alaska!
the new houseowner didn't repair a window that i broke in a drunken mood... 8 years ago!
sure was a trip down memory lane, the studenthouse was not known for the fact that is was very clean. (i used to be proud of the fact that i never bought any detergent or cleaned the toilet in my studentdays)
either way, it was not as bad as //bens apartment! ben is a bit dirty...
