Episode: The Lighter Side of Death
How it unfolded
Being a veteran in drag boat racing, Sunny Moon, he does another race reaching speeds up to 263 MPH but when pulling the brakes nothing happened and turned out to be jammed. Since nothing seemed to work on the boat he decided to jump out risking major injuries. The boat launched into the air crashing into a power line turning the boat into a fire ball. Luckily he survived the landing into the water, meaning that he would've die if he'd stayed in the boat.
