What Caused the Death of Michael Lush?

Recently, a Noel Edmonds career documentary looked back on the incident in which a man was killed while taking part in a stunt gone bad, resulting in the cancellation of a TV program. When a clip holding him to the box came loose and he fell to the earth, Michael Lush, who had been hired to bungee jump from a box suspended 120 feet in the air by a crane, died.

Nick Ferrari, who at the time served as the showbiz editor of The Sun, speaks about the incident in the new Channel 5 documentary. “The ‘Give it a Whirl piece was one of the most well-liked parts. Then he explains how he received word of the disaster before calling Edmonds to get confirmation.

He claims, “The individual had no adequate training. As I recall, he had some reservations about the feat on an actual day since the bungee rope wasn’t attached properly.

After the tragedy, it was claimed that the BBC gave Lush’s family an ex-gratia payment of about £120,000. The broadcaster was also fined £2,000 in addition to expenses after being investigated by the Health and Safety Executive for violating the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
