Thrill-seeker killed in parachute jump off Calif. mountain

Walden Grindle, 35, died over the weekend after colliding with a cliff at Napa County's Mt. Saint Helena. He was parachuting off the mountaintop.

"He probably just misjudged how close he was to the rock formation," Anderson said. "That's part of what the thrill is - to see how close you can get to things, and he just got a little too close."

According to the United States Parachute Association, which issues skydiving licenses and publishes training manuals on the extreme sport, 19 fatal skydiving accidents were reported in the United States out of about 3.1 million jumps in 2012.
