Saad Khan was an employee of RBS (Royal Bank Of Scotland) was tall at 6′ 2 inches and termed very good looking by those who knew him. He was known by his friends for his love of the thrill. He lived in Gulshan Iqbal and participated in the show not because of money but for the challenge.
Initially he had been disqualified from the show after a few days of shooting but was then called back again on a wild card entry. This time however death claimed him because of lack of safety equipment.
Initial autopsy reports in Thailand suggest that he pulled a muscle whilst competing in an under-water challenge. At the time he had some weight tied to his chest as part of the challenge and could not make it back up. He was under water for about 6 minutes, during the time which the Indian production team from ‘Working Hands Productions’ helplessly watched on.
He was 31 years. He is survived by his eldest girl who is 7 years, twin boys aged 5.5 years and the youngest, another boy who is just a year and a half.
