Well known BASE jumper Shane Murphy died this week following a wingsuit BASE jump in the Fiz mountain range near Chamonix, France. Chamonix is a well-loved destination for extreme athletes of all kinds, including BASE jumpers. Shane was highly experienced but for some reason did not make it back to the landing zone. His body was recovered by mountain rescue service. The cause of the accident is not known or has not been released at this point.
Our sympathies to all of Shane’s family and friends.
