The co-host and "stunt guy" on a local radio morning show was sent to the hospital after one of his stunts unraveled.
Dominic Dieter, known simply by his last name on WKRI/92.3 "K-Rock"'s "Rover's Morning Glory", won't be doing his "Dare Dieter" stunts anymore. At least for a while.
WEWS/5 "NewsChannel 5" reports that Dieter's stunt this morning - rolling down a hill while in a barrel - ended up hurting Mr. Dieter.
Host Shane "Rover" French told listeners and reporters that the lid came off the barrel while it was rolling down the 80-foot plus hill with his co-host inside. At that point, French said Dieter's head and shoulders came out of the open barrel, and Dieter "flopped around" (French's word).
Dieter was taken to a Cleveland hospital, where at last check, he was being checked in the emergency room. He'd complained of not being able to feel his feet after the barrel stopped rolling.
French told WEWS and other stations that the "Dare Dieter" segment is history.
Ummm...we're not sure we'd bet on that. And this is not Mr. Dieter's first turn at getting hurt doing his stunts...
