DEATHWISH GRANTED:

Mario Richard, BASE Jumper and Sky Diver, Dies at 47 (JOHN BRANCH, 8/21/13, NY Times)

Mario Richard, a leader in the extreme sport of BASE jumping, in which participants leap from fixed objects and use a parachute to break their fall, died on Monday while wingsuit flying in the Dolomites in Italy. He was 47.
