Canadian extreme sportsman Mario Richard has been killed -- in a parachute jump, in Italy -- after crashing between two rock towers.

Italian rescuers say the victim, 47, failed to clear a rock, while wearing a webbed wingsuit, designed to provice extra lift.

Richard lived in Utah, where he helped run Moab B.A.S.E. Adventures.
