Greater Noida, April 7 (IANS) A stuntman rappelling down a 60-foot building plunged to his death as people watched in horror while at the same time another stunt went wrong when a jeep carrying Bollywood actress Sayali Bhagat turned turtle during a mall inaugural event in Greater Noida Saturday.


According to police, the accidents occurred at the Great Adventure Mall situated opposite Gautam Buddha University in Greater Noida, near the national capital.

'When Shailendra was enacting the stunt, he lost his grip on the rope and fell to the ground. He was rushed to a local hospital, where he was declared brought dead. Simultaneously another stunt was also being enacted on a jeep being driven by Sayali Bhagat. The jeep turned turtle during the show due to which Sayali Bhagat sustained a fracture of her right arm,' said Gajendra Singh, spokesperson for the SSP (Gautam Budh Nagar).



Senior police officials, including the SP of Greater Noida, were supervising the investigations.
