Elderly Californian dies in BASE jump in Idaho

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 05/09/2015 - 03:18
By Laura Zuckerman SALMON, Idaho (Reuters) - A 73-year-old California man was killed after his parachute deployed late during a 500-foot jump from a bridge into the Snake River in Idaho, the second death there this year tied to the extreme sport of BASE jumping, authorities said on Friday. Jim Hickey of Claremont, California, likely died on impact after hitting the water at a high rate of speed on Thursday evening, according to the Twin Falls County Sheriff’s Office. Hickey, a retired accountant, had participated in well over 1,000 jumps in the decade since he took up a sport in which parachutists free-fall from such fixed points as cliffs, bridges and buildings, said Tom Aiello, a friend and owner of a BASE jumping school in Twin Falls.
