Remembering Storm Chaser Matt Hughes – What Happened?
When you think of someone being a professional storm chaser, you probably think of the danger and risk of life and limb involved in getting so close to tornados and hurricanes. But Storm Chaser Matt Hughes wasn’t the victim of mother nature when he passed away on May 26th. What happened to the team member featured on the National Geographic Show?
According to rumors and online reports, the thirty year old died from complications from an attempted suicide attempt. No conclusive motive for his death was released. But the saddest thing is that he left behind a wife Kendra and two sons, Hunter and Collin.
On Wednesday’s night episode of Storm Chasers they paid tribute to Matt Hughes in the episode named “Dedication.” And there is a fund set up for his two young sons right here. – http://www.CozineMemorial.com
