Hungarian wingsuit flyer dies during China jump

Hungarian wingsuit flier Viktor Kovats jumps off a mountain Tuesday at Tianmen Mountain National Forest Park in Zhangjiajie in south China's Hunan province. Kovats died during this fatal jump into a gorge. His body was recovered Wednesday 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.
