How did Maxim Slobodian die? What was his Cause of Death?
According to Blick, a German-language daily and online news source in Switzerland, Maxim Slobodian died on Saturday night after suffering injuries in a BASE jump incident. According to reports, the mishap happened after he started the leap at the Crack Reminder launch site for Sputnik. Blick’s report states that the mishap happened after he committed to the jump at around 7:00 p.m.
Maxim Slobodian, a native of Ukraine, is said to have crashed after hitting a natural obstruction, most likely a tree or the high-altitude landscape, as he flew close to the “Tieregg” area in his wingsuit. Blick’s initial story omits any mention of his parachute, although other local sources attribute Blick’s loss to a malfunctioning chute. The majority of the injuries suffered by the 31-year-old were caused by a fall of about 300 metres.
Rega, a private air-rescue nonprofit organization, made an effort to save Slobodian there. The BASE jumper was apparently pronounced dead on the scene by their on-site doctor, though. The exact nature and extent of the injuries as mentioned earlier, are not yet known. It appeared that the fall-related injuries were fatal.
According to the relatively small-scale online news source Upto Brain, Slobodian’s parachute did not open as he fell to his death while practicing skydiving. However, no government sources have endorsed the information. As the St. Gallen’s police look into the incident, more information about the circumstances surrounding his death is anticipated. It will be interesting to see whether any recently discovered information is made public.
