An extreme sports enthusiast from west London, who disappeared in the Swiss Alps for three days, has been found alive in the mountains.
Dan Hunt, 33, from Shepherd's Bush, vanished on Saturday while so-called speed flying, which involves flying a small, fabric wing down a slope, at speeds of up to 75 miles an hour. This report from Piers Hopkirk.
A Londoner who went missing in the Swiss Alps has been found alive after four days stuck in a freezing crevasse. Friends raised £14,000 to continue the search for the speed-flier after his insurance company stopped paying.
Dan Hunt, 33, set off on a speed-flying expedition with two friends on Saturday but failed to arrive at the agreed landing site.
The extreme sport involves hurtling down a mountain at speeds of up to 75mph on a lightweight parachute.
Friends and family were fearing the worst but earlier today his friend Nadeem Al-Khafaji found him stuck in a crevasse and he was pulled out to safety.
Apparently the crevasse was so deep he could not have climbed to safety without help.
