Stunt Attempt Proves Fatal for Skydiver
A skydiver attempting a stunt was killed when he hit a suspension bridge and fell onto the rocks below, police said.
Dwain Weston, 30, died following the inaugural Go Fast Games. He struck the 1,053-foot-high Royal Gorge Bridge in Canon City, said Heather Hill, a vice president of event sponsor Go Fast Sports & Beverage Co.
Weston, of Australia, had jumped from an airplane with another parachutist. The two were supposed to free-fall until reaching the bridge, at which point Weston was to go above the bridge and the other athlete would go under it.
