An uncensored footage showing the final moment of Hungarian daredevil ‘wingsuit flier’ Victor Kovats emerged online.
His body has been found a day after he plunged into a remote valley in northwestern China during a practice flight ahead of the World Championships.
Rescuers discovered Victor Kovats with a smashed skull at the foot of a 100-meter (328-foot) cliff in Tianmen Mountain National Forest Park in Zhangjiajie on Wednesday, according to China’s state-run Xinhua news agency.
An investigation is now underway, though rescuers believe Kovats crashed into the cliff when his parachute failed to deploy.
Wingsuit flying is an extremely hazardous sport where participants glide through the air wearing a specially constructed suit with fabric under the arms and legs to slow the rate of descent.
Much like skydiving, the flight ends with the deployment of a parachute.
