Unique times-American daredevil Dean Potter and friend die during stunt performance

America’s best known extreme athlete dies during stunt performance of wingsuit accident in Yosemite national park, California. He was attempting a wingsuit flight from a height of 7,500 feet from the Yosemite National Park. He was performing the stunt along with his fellow extreme athlete Graham Hunt who also got killed in the stunt. Soon after their contact got lost, the rescuers recovered their bodies. They were wearing skin tight suits with batwing sleeves and a flap between their legs for helping them glide up. It was found out that their parachutes were not being separated which they think this would be a reason for their accident. Dean Potter was one of the recognizable stunt athletes in California who got the record of being the first one to climb the Yosemite’s three most big walls within one day. He was always very fond to take on new challenges.
