A US preacher, who used his radio network and thousands of billboards to broadcast the end of the world, is dead.
Harold Camping was 92 at the time of his death.
Family Radio Network, a Christian media company Camping co-founded, released a statement about his death Monday.
“On Saturday, November 30th, Mr. Camping sustained a fall in his home, and he was not able to recover from his injuries. He passed away peacefully in his home, with his family at his side,” the statement read.
Camping gained worldwide attention when he predicted the end of the world would occur on May 2011.
But the event never unfolded.
The prediction led his followers to sell their possessions in anticipation of the world’s impending end.
Following the failed prediction, Camping said he was flabbergasted and blamed a mathematical error.
He then gave a new date, October 2011, but the world never ended as predicted.
After the second failure, Camping announced “an end to all doomsday predictions.”
It is reported that donations to Camping dropped by 70 percent after his failed predictions. It is unclear how Family Radio Network will be run following the evangelist’s death.
