The tragic deaths that occurred due to extreme sports

Base jumping is an extreme sport. People with a titanium nervous system jump from construction sites such as bridges, using parachutes or special wing suits, thanks to which you can develop a high horizontal speed in the air and lower vertical speed, which leads to the fact that a person does not fall down, but soars in the air. It is not at all surprising that base jumping is sometimes fatal.

Joy made a name for himself and earned worldwide fame when he was able to pacify dangerous waves on the famous northern coast of Hawaii. The last wave that the guy managed to catch was a huge thick wall of water two and a half meters high, which covered the young surfer with his head and took his life.

It took 15 minutes to find his body. Despite all the efforts of the rescuers and doctors who provided first aid, it was too late for the young surfer. Malik Joy died at age 25.

Dwyn Weston was a legendary Australian athlete who did base jumping. At one time he was considered one of the best in this extreme sport. However, despite all his professionalism and a lot of time spent in the air, this does not guarantee that there will be no errors in the future. Dwain was a computer analyst who, traveling the world, made more than 1000 jumps.

Dvain was supposed to fly over the bridge, and his colleague was under it. Instead, he crashed into a bridge at a speed of 193 kilometers per hour (120 miles per hour) and landed on the rocks.
