PHOTOS:Stunt Man , who dressed as James Bond And Parachuted Into The London 2012 Olympics Celebration Is Dead



World-famous stuntman Mark Sutton,42, who acted as James Bond's double and parachuted into the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony, has died in a jumping accident in Switzerland.

He died yesterday[Aug 14] after crashing into a mountain ridge in the Swiss Alps after jumping from a helicopter in a wing-diving suit.
The former army officer is thought to have died instantly in the accident near Martigny, close to the Switzerland-France border.
Mr Sutton jumped with a friend from a height of 10,826ft (3,300m) at around 11am yesterday and had planned to land close to the hamlet of Le Peuty, near Trient.
The reason for the crash is unclear - it could be an unexpected gust of wind pushed Mr Sutton off course.
Mr Sutton, who served with the Gurkha Rifles, was one of 20 other wing suit flyers taking part in an event filming an extreme sports video - it is not clear if he was taking part in the film when he was killed.
May he RIP! more pics of him during the Olympic celebration after the cut
