BASE jumper almost drowned in Norway

Recommended Posts

Yesterday (july 29) a 34 year old male BASE jumper got knoked unconcius, and almost drowned when he performed a cutaway at aprox. 60 feet above the water. His condition is now reported to be stable.

I have only read articles in newspapers about this incident, but it seems to me as he miscalculated his altitude.

This is by the way the third incident at Kjerag the last seven days. There has been a lot of bad publicity for BASE jumping (and skydiving) in Norwegian media lately. See also my post in the "skydiving talk back" forum, about legal actions against rescue workers at Kjerag.
