What Happen To Maxim Slobodian? Investigating the reason of his death
According to Blick, a Swiss German-language daily and online news site, Maxim Slobodian died on Saturday evening after being injured in a BASE jump mishap. The catastrophe happened after he continued with the leap at the Sputnik launch site, also known as Crack Reminder. According to Blick’s account, the disaster occurred at 7 p.m., after he committed to the leap.
Maxim Slobodian apparently crashed while flying in the “Tieregg” region in his wingsuit after hitting natural impediments, which are believed to be trees or high-altitude terrain. The bulk of his injuries was sustained when the 31-year-old plummeted around 300 meters. While Blick’s first account did not include his parachute, other local sources have said that a malfunctioning chute was the cause of his death.
Rega, a private non-profit air-rescue service, tried to save Slobodian on the spot. Their on-site doctor, however, allegedly declared the BASE jumper dead on the spot. The obvious reason was fatal injuries acquired during the fall. However, the precise type and degree of the aforementioned ailments remain unknown.
According to Up to Brain, a small-scale internet news source, Slobodian’s parachute failed to release as the professional skydiver plunged to his death. However, no official sources have validated the claim. More information on the cause of his death is likely when St. Gallen police examine the event. It remains to be seen, though, if any newly discovered information will be made public.
