Radio Host Who Predicted World’s End Dies

OAKLAND (CBS Sacramento) – Harold Camping, the radio preacher who predicted the world would end in 2011, has died at age 91, according to the Family Radio Network.

He suffered a fall in his home on November 30th and died of his injuries on December 15th, according to the statement.

Camping gained national attention when with advertisements and warnings on his radio network that God’s judgement would be visited on the world in May 2011.

At that time, he predicted, those who had attained salvation through Jesus would be whisked away to heaven, and the Earth would be destroyed after much trial and tribulation in October 2011.

Neither of those events have apparently come to pass.

In March of 2012 Camping apologized for his dire warnings, saying they were “incorrect and sinful,” reports Religion News.

Camping is survived by his wife of 71 years.
