[1]The British daredevil who parachuted into the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony as James Bond has been killed in an accident in the Swiss Alps, police said.

Former army officer Mark Sutton, 42, was killed while jumping from a helicopter in a winged suit as part of an event near Martigny, in the Lower Valais canton.

Swiss police are still investigating, but the stuntman is thought to have died after crashing into a rock on a mountain ridge. Police said he jumped from a helicopter at 10,800 feet.
