Hungarian wingsuit flier Viktor Kovats jumps off a mountain at Tianmen Mountain National Forest Park in Zhangjiajie in south China's Hunan province. Kovats died during this fatal jump into a gorge in central China. His body was recovered today from the steep, forested valley floor at the park, state broadcaster CCTV said. The reports said the highly experienced Kovats apparently died from a head injury after crashing into a cliff-side. His 700-meter (2,290-foot) jump Tuesday afternoon was part of preparations for the Second World Wingsuit Championship being held in the park from Oct. 11 to 13.
