'Doomsday' preacher Harold Camping dies at 92

Melbourne, December 18 : The California doomsday preacher Harold Camping has died at the age of 92.


The retired civil engineer, who built a worldwide following for the non-profit, Oakland-based ministry he founded in 1958, had been admitted to the hospital after falling, and died at his home on Sunday, News.co.au reported.

The most widely spread prediction he made, using his evangelical radio ministry and thousands of billboards, was that the Rapture would happen on May 21, 2011, but gave up public prophecy when his date-specific doomsdays did not come to pass.
