RIP Downfallen

As he frequented this forum a lot, I thought you guys would appreciate this info.

Yesterday, Downfallen passed away on a BASE jump in Switzerland.

I know a few people on here have met him over the years. I'm sure you'll agree that he was always full of life and always looking for the next adventure, whether it be looking for the next jump or just taking photos from up high.

Fly free my friend. I'll miss you.

from swiss news -

Quote:
Un Britannique de 37 ans a fait une chute mortelle en faisant du basejump lundi vers 17 heures à Lauterbrunnen, dans l’Oberland bernois. Il est le septième qui se tue à cet endroit cette année en faisant du basejump.

Le Britannique et cinq autres base jumpers voulaient faire un saut en wingsuit depuis le spot de "Mighty" au Mürrenfluh, sur la commune de Lauterbrunnen). Alors qu’il savançait sur la rampe de saut, il a perdu léquilibre et est tombé.

Il a utilisé son parachute qui s'est ouvert en direction de la falaise. Le base jumper a alors heurté la paroi rocheuse.

À l'arrivée de l'hélicoptère des secours, grièvement blessé, l'homme était décédé.

Tragic news. As the other guys have said he was out and about on some SSC site visits & drinks and was a pleasant chap. His photos as well , as most of us will agree were exceptional.

RIP Downfallen

Never met the guy but I can safely say his brilliant photos made up the majority of my last half a dozen desktop wallpapers.
Keep scaling those skyscrapers in heaven dude.
