It's a Developing Story:
I first saw the few lines
ESPN was Reporting:
The big mountain skier & BASE jumper Shane McConkey was killed in a ski--BASE accident in the Italian Dolomites.....

Shane McConkey experienced very severe problems in the air after launching off a cliff with the expectation of deploying his parachute canopy & then gliding down it to the Earth....

Shane McConkey was Filming

Shane McConkey Instantly died
on impact with snow on the ground below the cliff when he was trying it to launch for deploying the parachute canopy downt to earth..

Some Words By Mike Libecki..

Shane was a wonderful person. I went to Baffin with him and watched him rule Sam Ford Fjord. I was inspired to say the least, not only by his skills, but his qualities of being human. I am truly saddened, truly.

  12. Back in the day I made 30-40 jumps with Shane at Tahoe and he was the man. Seriously a great guy. Some people really know how to live life and he was one of them. He was a great jumper, obviously an amazing skiier, hilariously funny at times and an overall great person. It's sad that people like the person who made comment #1 feel compelled to spend time making such insensitive and unneccessary comments about people they don't even know. Especially when there are so many people out there, friends-family-wife-child, who are deeply saddened by this loss and who could use words of comfort rather than words of hate. Rather than wasting energy putting him in his place, I suggest the best retaliation is to use this space to post comments that highlight Shane's contributions to this world as there were many. Celebrate him rather than berating our ignorant friend. Blue skies Shane!
