Death of BASE Jumper Dwain Weston – Slammed Full Speed Into a Bridge

Death of BASE Jumper Dwain Weston - Slammed Full Speed Into a Bridge

Here’s another video of a BASE jumper killing himself engaging in the extreme sport. Australian BASE jumper Dwain Weston was considered one of the world’s best at the time. On October 5, 2003 while performing a proximity demonstration, Dwain Weston died slamming full speed into the Royal Gorge Bridge near Canon City in Colorado, USA.

At the time of the impact, Dwain Weston was flying at an estimated 160 km/h speed. Experts believe that Dwain Weston miscalculated his distance from the bridge and misjudged the tricky winds within the narrow gorge. After hitting the railing on what is the highest suspension bridge in the world, the BASE jumper dropped 90 meters onto the rocky bottom of the Royal Gorge.

Dwain Weston was only 30 year old when the incident took place. The slam into the bridge was so strong, it totally disintegrated him. Brutal, but he died doing what he loved. Sheer brutality of the impact along with the fact that Dwain Weston was considered to be the best wingsuiter in the world made his death video the most famous BASE jumping accident in history.

  1. I remember this happening. Extremely dangerous sport that I enjoy, also. The slightest miscalculation can be devastating, as observed here.

    I watched this fellow named Dwain,
    As he flew ’round just like a plane.
    Coming down from the ridge,
    His face smacked the bridge,
    But he did not feel any pain.

  2. Died doing what he loved. How many times have I heard that stupid expression. I doubt that if he could see his future that morning he would have made that jump. If you want the ultimate thrill you must pay the ultimate price. Tony Montana would say “you stupid fuck, look at you now!.”

    • Remember 1 thing, JUNIOR.
      Most of us here like anmials much more than humans, due to the fact that anmials can be truseted, and majority of what they do, makes fucking sence (unlike the fleshy virus types)

      So if you want to comment on how “hardcore” you are because you can kill something small and defensless, because the idea you have of being ABLE to kill, you think is impressive to us, you best think again.

      Do some research about DUSTY ans learn what we did to him.
      Shit, Mark, do you have anything to comment about that?
      I know a few others might have something to say.

      Look kid, your obviously pretty young, some things you will (maybe) learn through time, and, clearly, time has not a chance to happen much for you.

      To kill is very human, that’s why majority of us are here, we get off on death.
      I, for one, say it’s normal, we’re just not too gay to admit it.
      But, if given the legal oppertunity, most of us, driven by LIFE EXPERIANCED-driven hate, would choose to hunt people, not anmials.

      So, think next time that you want to come off as bold, it might blow up in your face like an old bomb that is being dismanteled in a welding shop.

      And I’m serious, do some research on Dusty, and get back to me.

        • Uh dude im 18 … i cant really give u proof but lol i aint no kid and 2 im just joking about kittens and puppies but i wont lie i hate birds…i fucking hate crows. Pretty agrivates the shit out of me. Your the seconed guy to tell me i looked young but trust me buddy if i got to show u my facebook (dont even bother with that old shit site anymore) or wannt to go into the process of showing u all my shit or asking my family to tell you my age. Dont even get me started about my hatred for the meek of humanity either.i have been through a very degrading school life of shit . I beat a boy half to death on the monkey bars when i was 8 and strangle another when i was 15 (teachers stoped us kinda flashed i really had no idea what i was doing) but in all do respect i do understand that animals are much better then humans infact i would kill a hundred people to have my alex back. But i was but a boy and life was harsh so when i make a animal jokes im kidding..but i will never joke about human life.human are too fun dead!

          • Also might i add….hardcore? Do you think i came here to impress you? Do you think i came to this site for attention? Maybe yes? Maybe no? I came to this site to quinch my thirst for blood and gore and maybe make a friend that understands my need and hate for our little race we call humanity.i have no need to impress you people.nor the desire to tell what i do. I am who i am a monster inside my own mind who lusts for death not a little show for humans to mock how i think. So dont you dare make me sound like a clown…i am but a simple human..just with a little darker of mind then most. I may act like a fool and look like shit but hey i dont give a good fuck it means when you judge me you dont differ from all the other humans that bully others to make them feel better.but i will have the last laugh one day that i can say so judge me as you will. I wont mind.

          • I have underware older than you. 18 is still sperm.

            You are JUST starting out, and trust me, it doesn’t get much better.
            It gets very DIFFRENT, but not much better.

            Maybe for you it will, but I suggest You take your blinders off, I don’t think you need them.

            You are so diffrent from everybody, just like everybody else. We get it, we have all been there, then we grew out of it.

            You should go job hunting, somebody will hire you IMMEDATLY because you still know everything.

            That will change in time, junior.

    • are you aware Bestgore is an animal cruelty-free site? you won’t find the usual hidden abattoir camera, blokes setting fire to cats or throwing dogs off buildings type stuff on here! therefor your comment won’t win you much support, even if it’s a joke.

      • Eh..humans dont take the time to read what i say either..-_- fine fine…you all can handle murder..but you cant take a joke. Yes sure humans are squishy dumb creatures that im so cursed to be as but when it comes to making a joke its a strom of anger. If im so ill treated for making a dumb joke i will leave if so wanted so good day you all i hope your lifes ar full of gore.

        • Seeeee ya.

          You should realise that when you’re in a hole……… stop digging.

          You tried to cover your ass brought on by making a throw away comment about crulety to animals and BOOOOOOOM, the shit hits the fan.

          Too late pal, the cat’s out of the bag and shredding your eyballs ;)

          • (My apologies to everybody else, this is a copy/paste of a comment made on the page-prior, I just want to make DAMN SURE that he sees it.

            It is, yet, another Rotten Stench novel, but, what the fuck else is new)

            2nd that.
            I got on his case pretty hard yesterday on the other post of Death By Gravity (next one up)
            His reply…..2(!) postings that rival mine in length, but, were just the excuse-makings of an 18 year old sperm that thinks he knows himself better than we know him….a over explanative, I’m so different-just-like-everyone-else, nobody understands me, I was raped in school bunch by the bigger kids, Nobody reads the context in which they were written, bullshit type of words.

            (to JUNIOR…)
            I understand that you said these things in jest, as a “joke” or, what i would describe as a very adolescent attempt to fit in here, by trying to be “just as hardcore as the other kids in the room”
            I was there once…it’s called being YOUNG and STUPID.
            I don’t fault you for your motive, because it’s you being you (very young and naive) and if I don’t like it, there isn’t much i can do about it.

            BUT….

            There WAS no context, you just spout out what you think will make you look edgy and smart, but, the exact opposite happens, because You FAILED at learning about your audience first.
            We (well, most of us anyway) DO NOT take harm to animals lightly, through joking or otherwise (again, go educate yourself about Kenny Glenn and Dusty if You are inclined to try and NOT be such a shitrivit)

            That’s all.

  3. Hey how the hell u change the profile pic! Im tired of looking at mine it looks like a potato cyclops vampire devil chicken footed tentacle porn alien!

      • How do you walk around with balls big enough to base jump/skydive? Hats off to you machine man. I consider it foolish to jump from high places but admire the fools who cast their fate to the wind. When they go splat it won’t be me.

        • Well, it’s easier for me, not being the size of a mouse ;).
          People don’t realize the pure adrenaline of freefall. You’re missing out, brother!

          • I experianced sky diving 5 years ago, about the most freaky, but fun thing I have done before.

            Every single instinct says “DON’T FUCKING MOVE!”
            and when you roll out, I was SO FUCKING SCARED that the entire freefall was going to be a stomach-drop, which, thankfully, it wasn’t.

            THAT, was a very, very happy day after the landing.
            (a novice is tethered to a non-novice…that was also about the weirdest (gay) thing I have ever done, being straped to some dude, BEHIND ME!! wasn’t the most comfortable airplane ride I have ever been on)

            p.s. hights freak me the fuck out, have sence I was just a little girl.

  5. *ONXY VOICE*
    “SLAM! .. duh duh duh .. duh duh duh Let the boys be boys”

    3 more feet & he woulda made it right ?? I dont care I would pulled my SHOOT if I knew I was even remotely gonna be close or in danger of clipping the bridge .. but he probably wasnt MAD or BUMMED at himself for not CALCULATING BETTER right ??

  6. His friend who performed the stunt with him (the black parachute) in an interview said that before he opened his chute he flew through Dwain’s blood & didn’t really know what had happened until he landed near and noticed one of Dwain’s legs nearby. Don’t know his name but he has been on TV a few times doing jump stunts since then. The last was he was going to try skydiving and landing with no parachute on a ramp of some sort. I never followed up on it. Anyone hear of that? I bet he came to his senses and moved on.

  7. Humans aren’t supposed to make anything near a clank sound…as a BS holder in physics I’d be interested to hear an engineer/architect’s estimate of the force required to make the bridge react the way it did…knowing even the human body is greatly disturbed when even IT is knocked hard enough to move that much…jfc…r.i.p.

    • Bachelors o’ science in physics, fuck man, good follow through.
      Most I can sumize is the hip/femurs, possable sturnum hitting the steel so hard that the saound was VERY audible.
      With that much kenetic energy, he might as well flew into an airplanes’ props.

  8. This is my first comment on Bestgore! The video is amazingly brutal without the gore! He took the Highway to Hell. ps// thanks for the good stuff Mark, It’s well appreciated!

  9. Why can’t mark slow mo this shit down…theres a couple other vids I’m sure we’d all like slowed down like the Brazilian bike splat and the Russian semi that t-boned and exploded that suv and the race car smacking that guy in half…and well you get the point

    • Oh yeah, merely a flesh wound, you’d have to use a staple gun to put it all back together, good as new and on the front page of Gore.com! :D

  10. i can imagine flying through the air would a cool peaceful thing but not when you go resident evil style through the fencing and wiring of a bridge. what a sound his body made. i guess he was preparing or letting everyone know to have his ashes tossed over the bridge into the canyon below. quick death but frickin brutal. can’t walk that one off. just a flesh wound. he’ll get better.

    • Yeah fuck yeah, the earlier video of the sons reactions to his dads predicament in the snow skiing accident sent me into an uncontrollable laughing fit……… Nurse! where’s my fucking meds.

          • That has been on almost every single death flick since it took place.
            That face turned drinking fountan of his is, SHOCKING.

            Who thought that that much would come out so fast.

            Don’t know if you are new or not.
            If you are, welcome to Best Gore.
            If not, than forget I said that.

          • thank you. i’m kind of new. lol. i’ve been visiting for a while, i’m just now signing up though. :) budd dwyer is my fave classic gore. followed very closely by the hoover dam suicide.

          • yeah I love it when I find something really ‘classic’ for the first time, like the Bud Dwyer video.

  11. Man was not really meant to fly. It defies God’s will. It is only thru his machinations that he has accomplished it. Sometimes progress is not such a great thing.

  12. I would never forget the sound of bones and flesh rattling a suspension bridge. Even for thoes who tried to look away will still be plauged by having heard the extremely loud exchange of energy from man to bridge.

  13. Brutal splat… but the bridge is 1053 feet above the bottom of the gorge, not 90 meters. I’ve been there before, and it’s not an actual highway bridge. As cars drive (slowly) across it, the entire structure rumbles & shakes. So for a high-speed human to hit the railing, I can see why it would shake the bridge so much.

  14. Who likes poems?

    Man hit that bridge like shit hits a fan.
    His body exploded raining arms, legs and hands.
    What a sight to behold seeing all of his gibs.
    Hey look! I can see his chest, stomach, and ribs!
    He shouldn’t have went for an epic high-five.
    For he would certainly be embarrassed if he was undead and couldn’t die.

  15. I ain’t lookin’ but who the hell wants to jump off that sh**? Aren’t we in enough danger just living. What-ever. I’m not an outdoors, extreme adventurer type, I guess.

  16. A man who was once very terrible to me that I was close to did all this extreme outdoors stuff and survived many of these jumps. Why did it have to be Dwight and the others? Dang it. >P

  17. Thata Boy Insain with pain dwain show em what you can do wow the crowd! KA SSSSSSLAM! WOOPS A DAISY! TA TA! SEE you in the after life!

  18. I pray to God he listened to his dear, saintly mother and had clean underwear on. Can you imagine the embarrassment with an open casket funeral like his with dirty underwear?

  19. LOL that was great,..oh no is right lmao,i liked the way the pieces went flying lmao im stilll laughing i cant help it LOL hahaaa
