We decided to do a hike and fly the evening before, at about 19:00. We slept at Tanzbödeli and wanted to do a cliff start. I was flying a 15m Swing Hybrid. My start was perfect, but when I turned around, I saw him falling about 150m down in to the rocks. When I landed beside him, I already knew it was too late for him. I was the only one with him and remember this accident every day. Jonas was 24 years old. He is my guarding Angel and will always be in my hard. RIP Jonas
