A daredevil Catholic priest who was killed after floating out to sea suspended by 1,000 helium-filled party balloons has been honoured for his idiocy.
Reverend Adelir Antonio di Carli had been trying to break a record for the longest time in-flight with party balloons when he disappeared.
Three months later his body was discovered off the south-eastern coast of Brazil.
But now he has won the 2008 Darwin Awards which commemorates people who die in a stupid fashion.
Well done. Your parishioners must be so proud.
