Extreme Sports Legend Films his own Death in Tragic Accident

Italian parachutist-turned-daredevil Uli Emanuele, 29, made a name for himself online with incredible jumps from dizzying heights and through impossible gaps. Sadly it all came to an end.

On Wednesday, August 17th, Emanuele had been filming for camera maker GoPro, up in the Dolomite Mountain Range, North Italy. He announced he intended to make a jump over 10,000 ft high there. Unfortunately, during a jump, he lost control and crashed into the rocks below before he had a chance to open his parachute, like with past jumps. Fans have paid respects on social media, declaring Emanuele a hero and inspiration, and likewise is extended here towards his friends and family.
