British stuntman fell to his death in wing suit mishap
GENEVA (AP) - The British stuntman who parachuted into the London Olympics opening ceremony as James Bond has been killed in an accident in the Swiss Alps while flying a special wing suit.
Online extreme sports broadcaster Epic TV says Mr Mark Sutton died during a gathering it had organised involving 20 wing suit pilots, who were being filmed as they jumped from helicopters.
Swiss police confirmed that a 42-year-old Briton died on Wednesday in a fall near Trient in the Valais region.
The 2012 Summer Games opening ceremony memorably included Mr Sutton as a Bond double jumping with another stuntman dressed as a skydiving Queen Elizabeth II.
