BASE jumper live streams own death on Facebook

28-year-old BASE jumper, Schmieder, live streams what turned out to be his death after jumping of the Swiss Alps, in a chilling video.

Schmieder, moments before his death

Sadly, this 28-year-old Italian will learn this the hardest way imaginable.

The deceased live-streamed what turned out to be his death on Facebook, after telling his fans, "Today you fly with me" moments before leaping to his death in the Swiss Alps in Kandersteg, Switzerland.

The video clip shows Schmieder talking to his fans before his phone is kept in his pocket to record to jump.

For about six minutes, fans can hear the wind in the clip before a scream is heard followed by a sickening thud, after which everything goes quiet.

Officers confirmed Schmieder's death but are yet to confirm what may have caused it.

BASE jumping is coined from the four places one can launch from with a parachute or a wingsuit, an acronym for Building, Antenna, Span, and Earth (cliffs).

Unfortunately, daredevils like Schmeider understand the risks of what should not be described as a hobby, as the BASE community has continued to suffer one too many tragic deaths and Scheider's will not be the last.
