    Yesterday whilst in Lauterbrunnen Switzerland, on the first day, DF was killed whilst doing what he loved - BASE jumping.

    A great loss for UE and the BASE jumping scene.

    Rest in Peace mate.

    Posted in High Stuff, because that was his thing.

    OMG, that is truly tragic news, I am so sorry for his friends & family. Some comfort in knowing he was doing something he truly enjoyed doing.

    That's truly shocking and awful news. I had the pleasure of exploring with him a number of times and accompanying one of his jumps in London. What a tragic loss, I really don't know what to say. My heart goes out to his family and friends and I suppose the only saving grace is that he died doing something he loved. Only the good die young. Rest in peace.

    He accomplished some amazing feats and was a nice guy too. RIP to a proper legend in the truest sense of the word.

    At the minute OT, details are a little thin on the ground. I literally just took a call from a friend I made in Switzerland whilst with DF on a BASE trip.

    Shocked as you guys are!

    Will let you know when I hear anymore.

    As a few of you have said, at least it was something that he loved soo much, and had dedicated his life too.... :(
