BASE Fatality List

Fatality list of people who dies during BASE Jump

BASE jumping is one of the world’s most dangerous recreational activities. This BASE Jumping Fatality List table shows a statistical breakdown of fatalities from 1981 To present.

The nature of BASE jumping is that many of the statistics about this sport have to be taken with a grain of salt. No one keeps records on the many jumps that happen at night, in the boondocks or with no one else around. However, the current BASE number is above 1,800, and the World BASE Fatality List reached 97 on Feb 6, 2013.

The statistics are taken from BLiNC Magazine. Any copying or reproduction without explicit consent of the author is forbidden. The most complete up-to-date list can be found at blincmagazine.com.

  1. My greatest respect to these brave BASE jumpers.
    Rather die while living and doing what you love, than never live at all.

    Respect and condolences.

    1. hm..how is jumping off a building away to live? its thrill seeking, and thrill seekers need more extreme means to generate the thrill
      russian roulette is another method

  2. These people were heroes.. They opened a new way to live… Lots of risks, but intense emotions.. one day, we will be able to do what they did in a safety way, because of their research in that field and their sacrifice. RESPECT and PEACE to them.

  3. Ok, I’ll admit that I’m way too scared to ever base jump, or bungee jump. But let me share my perspective on this deadly activity.
    You are brave people to do this kind of sport. The world needs more of you desperately. Once you go out and do a few sic jumps, why not put this sport behind you and with the rest of your long life, use that courage to help the world. Whether that means taking a stand against oppressive forces, or risking your life to save someone in need of help.
    Thanks for listening.

  4. “Rather die while living and doing what you love, than never live at all.”

    I guess life sux, otherwise.
