Death of French BASE Jumper Jean-Marc Boivin at Angel Falls, Venezuela

Jean-Marc Boivin was a well accomplished French adventurer with extra passion for extreme sports. His list of achievements is way too long to list, but he did some serious bad ass shite back in his day. Unfortunately, life of Jean-Marc Boivin was cut short after his BASE jump off Angel Falls in Venezuela went bad.

On February 16, 1990 Jean-Marc Boivin took a successful BASE jump off 1,000 meters (3,300 ft) high Angel Falls (highest waterfall in the world) making it the first BASE jump from the Angel Falls’ highest point. Since the adventure was to be featured in an upcoming French TV program Ushuaïa, le magazine de l’extrême, cameras were rolling.

The following day, on February 17, 1990 the crew was set to film more BASE jumps off the falls. Female BASE jumper named Catherine injured herself landing at the foot of the falls, so Jean-Marc Boivin decided to jump right after her with first aid kit in the tow.

Shortly after his parachute opened, Jean-Marc Boivin was thrown against the cliff. While still conscious, he was unable to properly maneuver his chute and took some more beating before landing in the tree tops. Internal injuries and blood loss sustained during the jump killed him shortly after. Since jump was filmed by several TV cameras operated by pro cameramen, Jean-Marc Boivin’s death video is of good quality despite it being decades old.

  1. Killer…I skydive and BASE jump regularly. Hope I don’t end up like this dude, but if I do, my wife will share it with you all.

    Jean-Marc was an adrenaline junkie,
    Who lived his life kinda funky.
    He dove off with grace,
    But then smashed his face,
    And proceeded to flail like a monkey.

        1. Well, it is the first post. Yeah, How about this…

          I knew an aussie named Tiger,
          I think I probably like her.
          I could draw her a pic,
          It would be pretty sick,
          Like maybe a pic of a Liger.

          (Assuming you’ve seen Napoleon Dynamite)

          1. a ‘liger’ heh heh, is that a lion x tiger? or is that a tigon? I nearly rented ‘Napoleon Dynamite’ the other night, but when they told me I have $46 in over-due fee’s I walked out (didnt wanna give them any more $$

      1. Machineman’s poems are shitty,
        Even though he thinks they are witty,
        I hope he will know,
        Just how much they do blow,
        And how bad I wish he had Titties

        Im just fucking with ya machineman. I do enjoy your posts but you said feel free to bash so Im just having some fun. I hope you don’t take it the wrong way

      1. (no, that wasn’t my throw-in on the lymeric compitition)

        I’m addicted to a site called BestGore
        All over are death-sceenes I adore.
        With a machettee slashed corpse by a da Silva (of course)
        With comments that have me laughing for more.

        There’s my contibution, hope everything’s spelled right.

    1. Hey dipshit………. This is your second reference for cruelty to aminals.

      WTF……….Why ?…….. If I could get my hands on you, blood would spill mother fucker. No death but pleeeenty of blood for my camera and Best Gore.

      You need to take a good hard look at yourself buster.

      1. 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 audiance 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.

  2. he aint DEAD … someone got him out of the TREE & their LUCKILY was a JUNKIE walking around & gave him a couple of TOKES of BLACK TAR HEROIN off of some FOIL to ease his PAIN until he hit the HOSPITAL & hes all GOOD NOW (lol)

  3. Ligers are from a female tiger and a male lion. A liger looks like a big lion with muted stripes. They get huge for big cats. Ligers like water. Tigons are from a male tiger and a female lion. They are small, no bigger than their parents. On rare occasions there is a female that is fertile, but most of them are sterile. Their genus is the same but the species is different. They very rarely happen in the wild. The males of both tigons and ligers are sterile. Here’s a pic of a liger, he’s a huge boy. http://images.search.yahoo.com/images/view?back=http%3A%2F%2Fsearch.yahoo.com%2Fsearch%3Fei%3DUTF-8%26p%3Dliger%2Bvs%2Btigon&w=160&h=107&imgurl=www.bing.com%2Fimages%2Fsearch%3Fq%3Dliger%2Bvs%2Btigon%23focal%3D77d6a688099ed669e40a10af9ae7066d%26furl%3Dhttp%253a%252f%252f28.media.tumblr.com%252ftumblr_l6xk44J2Gq1qzs3iqo1_500.jpg&size=&name=search&rcurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bing.com%2Fimages%2Fsearch%3Fq%3Dliger%2Bvs%2Btigon%23focal%3D77d6a688099ed669e40a10af9ae7066d%26furl%3Dhttp%253a%252f%252f28.media.tumblr.com%252ftumblr_l6xk44J2Gq1qzs3iqo1_500.jpg&rurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bing.com%2Fimages%2Fsearch%3Fq%3Dliger%2Bvs%2Btigon%23focal%3D77d6a688099ed669e40a10af9ae7066d%26furl%3Dhttp%253a%252f%252f28.media.tumblr.com%252ftumblr_l6xk44J2Gq1qzs3iqo1_500.jpg&p=liger+vs+tigon&type=&no=3&tt=115&oid=http%3A%2F%2Fts2.mm.bing.net%2Fimages%2Fthumbnail.aspx%3Fq%3D1625442424565%26id%3Df973602b7fc48ac4f93797801656769d&tit=Tigon+-+Uncertain+Times&sigr=15470ja2c&sigi=14t0682qm&sigb=11oqrjsrh&fr=moz2-ytff-
    At one point in the vid it was like he had enough faculty to repel off the side of the canyon. He died doing what he loved and was trying to rescue another. Rest in peace.

    1. thanks @OB, you know there are some lions in Goa,India, a pride of around 200(?) I know its not many.They must have been spread across the whole continent at one stage. I know one huge black maned lion from North Africa is extinct, many were killed for entertainment in the Colosseum.
