On May 23, 1999, an unfortunate incident happened when Hart fell to his death in Kansas City, Missouri, during the Over the Edge pay-per-view event.

He would generally realize himself from the safety harness and fall flat on his face for comedic effect. This is a quick-release mechanism. It was an elaboration of his stunt done previously on Sunday Night Heat before Survivor Series in 1998.
But this time, when he performed the stunt while being lowered into the ring, Hart fell from 78 feet and landed on his Chest on the top rope, almost a foot from the nearest turnbuckle throwing him into the ring.
Hart was transported to Truman Medical Center in Kansas City, he had suffered many internal injuries, and the doctor couldn’t revive him. The cause of his death was internal bleeding from blunt force trauma. He was just 34 years old.
