Prominent Russian daredevil base jumper dies in Nepal

Russian extreme sportsman Valery Rozov died in Nepal while jumping from Ama Dablam, a 6,812-meter-high mountain in the Everest region Saturday. Rozov's body has still not been recovered. The circumstances around the tragedy is still unclear. The daredevil sportsman was pursuing a quest of the ‘Seven Summits,’ which involved jumping from the highest peaks of all the seven continents. Rozov held the world record for the highest base jump in a wing-suit, leaping from the Changtse peak in the Everest region from a height of 7,220 meters.
