Death by fat stunt falls minibike attempt

What happened to the Mccrary twin (of the Guinness world's fattest twins who ride the bikes together) in the Niagara Falls mini-bike accident? He died there, but I'm unable to find anything about how, what or why. Was he trying to jump the falls in a minibike?

Best answer: Can't find anything except the GBWR official wording that he died of heart failure after falling from his minibike.

I sincerely doubt that the physics involved would have conceivably been anywhere near a falls jump, and had there been such an attempt -- just 5 years after Evel Knievel's failed Snake River Canyon jump -- the publicity would have been tremendous.

Sounds to me like their career was basically traveling from city to city and making like Shriners on the minibikes.

Perhaps they were visiting the Museum of Niagara Falls? IIRC there is some assotiation with Guinness.
