Fans, friends and family are mourning the death of one of Canada's best-known professional wrestlers. World Wrestling Federation star, Owen Hart, died over the weekend after an accident during a televised wrestling match.

Hart fell as he was being lowered by cable into the ring from a ceiling catwalk in Kemper Arena in Kansas City. Reports say he plunged at least five storeys before he hit the ground.

Hart had wrestled professionally since 1986. He came from a long line of wrestlers, including his brother Bret (The Hitman) Hart, who is with the rival World Championship Wrestling organization.

A SNN reporter had the chance to speak with Owen Hart last year when he visited the Halifax Forum.
