Daredevil photographer, Jacob Cockle, 28, often tempted fate in the waters and uploaded extreme footages to his video-sharing sites, where his efforts racked up millions of views, but his luck ran out on May 28, 2013.
As a friend looked on, he was dragged under by a whirlpool in Carnsew Pool in the estuary of the River Hayle in Cornwall - while wearing a plastic horse head mask. He used the mask as a comedy prop to include in his footage.
As he ducked underwater with a waterproof camera to get close-up footage he was dragged down and sucked into the whirlpool.
