Wingsuit Contestant Plunges during Trial Flight in Tianmrn Mount Zhangjiajie

A wingsuit flyer fell to the ground after a parachute failed to open during a trial flight at a scenic spot in central Chinas Hunan Province, local authorities said on Tuesday.
The Hungarian wingsuit competition contestant, Victor Kovats, plunged into a valley at 3 p.m. in Tianmen Mountain National Forest Park in Zhangjiajie City during a trial jump after his parachute failed to open before landing.
Rescue work started immediately after the incident. Nearly 200 police and firefighters are sweeping the steep cliff area for the flyer with the help of searchlights.
The incident may be related to a technical error during the trial flight and the exact cause is still being investigated, said competition organizers.
The Second World Wingsuit Championship is scheduled to be held at the park from Oct. 11 to 13. Competitors are required to jump about 700 meters from the steep cliffs of
Tianmen Mountain.
The First World Wingsuit Championship was held at Tianmen Mountain last year with the participation of 15 fliers from nine countries.
Since it first appeared, wingsuit flying has been regarded as an extreme sport with high risk.
