Sad day, for his family and all those he guided and stood between certain death and a great day in the field. But for people like him, many of us would be pretty inept.
It does give one pause however, whether it's racing motorcycles, jumping from airplanes, riding broncs and bulls, hunting dangerous game, or what ever, if we keep putting ourselves, on a daily basis, up against the really crazy environments, on one day, sooner or later, gravity will get you. Not saying they should or shouldn't, many times it's necessary, sometimes it just for fun, but either way, when you hang it all out there, over and over, "an elephant will eventually fall on you".
May he and all those who live this life style and paid the ultimate price, rest in peace.
