Chris Nielsen got into a wingsuit and base jumper accident resulting in his tragic death. His workplace announced this news a few hours ago. 

The man had just celebrated his birthday on 12th June but little did we know that it was going to be his last. The comment section is filled with people wishing him on his special day.

This skydiving instructor completed his formal education at Skydive Panama. He was currently living in Phoenix, Arizona, and was originally from Sylvan Lake, Alberta.

What Happened To Chris Nielsen? Wingsuit Flying & Base Jumper Accident

According to his close friends, Chris Nielsen got into a tragic base jumper accident today.

Base jumping is a leisure activity that involves leaping from stationary objects and deploying a parachute to land safely. Buildings, antennae, spans, and earth are the four categories of permanent objects that make up the acronym "BASE." After an optional freefall wait, participants exit from a fixed object, such as a cliff, then release a parachute to slow their descent and land.

Chris worked as an instructor at Skydive Buckeye. The organization posted a heartfelt Facebook post expressing their grief for his demise. Further, they also extended their heartfelt condolences to his family. 

He was one of the most loved employees at Buckeye. It can be figured out just by looking at the comments from the post made by the skydiving center. Elizabeth Kirshner writes, "I am so heartbroken to hear this news… He was my first instructor to ever take me skydiving. He had the best energy and personality of someone I've ever met! He made me feel super safe, and I had an absolute blast with him. Forever in our hearts."

However, the post did not mention the particulars of the accident. The investigation and inquiry are hopefully going on smoothly.
