Dean Potter Dies In Wingsuit BASE Jumping Accident In Yosemite National Park

Posted by Zeb Tilton
Dean Potter Dies: Extreme athlete Dean Potter and a friend have died after attempting a base jump in the Yosemite National Park - The thrill-seeker, 43, and Graham Hunt, 29, died Saturday after trying a wingsuit flight from a 7,500-foot promontory called Taft Point. A search-and-rescue mission began overnight when the jumpers' spotter lost contact with them. Helicopter crews looking for the missing pair found their bodies Sunday in the Yosemite Valley. The New Hampshire native man was renowned for his bold and sometimes rogue climbs and base jumps, in which he would parachute from a fixed structure or cliff. Dean Potter, nicknamed the 'Dark Wizard', completed solo ascents and tightrope walks across some of the world's most famous rocks, and recently appeared in a film base jumping with his dog. He drew criticism in May 2006 after he made a "free solo" climb of Utah's iconic Delicate Arch, prompting outdoor clothing company Patagonia to drop its sponsorship of him. Spokesman for the park, Scott Gediman, said: 'This is a horrible incident, and our deepest sympathies go out to their friends and family. This is a huge loss for all of us.'
