sounds like she (and him) are the type to accept these risks, dying sucks but at least you died doing something you loved doing, too young too soon though.

I’m not a base jumper but I think many people here are confusing it with sky diving I know jumpers normally work in pairs for safety but I think people are assuming this means a tandem base jump. Hence the secondary shoots etc. No time in base since guys it’s not out of a plane literally not enough time. However I would question the wisdom of doing any sport whilst pregnant.


we don't work in pairs in skydiving too ;), we might jump in pairs (or more) but a few 100 meters before pulling your pilote chute you separate. Staying close is very dangerous and reserved for instructors and their students. So there is no staying in pairs safety rule in either skydiving or basejumping.

^^ This.
They all know the risks, hell it's what makes it fun in the first place. It is sad though.

Well bravo. She got what she wanted. One last time. Too bad she had to murder her kid.
