He fell to his death in Kansas City, Missouri on May 23, 1999 during the WWE Over The Edge pay-per-view event when a stunt where he was supposed to be lowered into the ring from the rafters went wrong. Hart fell 78 feet (24 m) into the ring, landing chest-first on the top rope near a corner.
Owen had just celebrated his 34th birthday a couple weeks before, and is survived by his wife and two children.
