16/05/2015 Dean Potter dies in a BASE jumping accident

D.S. Potter was an American free climber, BASE jumper, BASEliner, and highliner. He and his friend Graham Hunt were killed while attempting an illegal proximity wingsuit flight from Taft Point above Yosemite Valley. They had made this flight before, but it "still required precision to make it through a small notch. Hunt hit a side wall. Potter had cleared the notch and then crashed. They both died on impact."
