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.

    Those who climb above 10,000 w/out oxygen must acclimate over time. If you’re gonna just fly up above 10,000 feet in a matter of minutes, you’ll need supplemental oxygen.
