    From the LiveLeak.com page ...

    A wingsuiter identified as Armin Schmieder, can be seen readying his wingsuit before pocketing his phone and taking off on Friday 8/26/2016. The actual impact is not shown as the camera was in his pocket at the time but around minute 6:22 a shout can be heard and the sound of the impact. He can also be heard moaning. The bells you hear after the impact are more likely cow bells as he jumped near Kandersteg, a popular BASE jumping location with cow pastures.

    Fuck BASE jumping. It has some insane death rate for participants.
