Skydiver in 'flying squirrel' suit still missing in Washington state1/5/2013
The search for a missing skydiver in Washington state enters its third day Saturday. 29-year-old Kurt Ruppert of Lake City, Fla., was skydiving wearing a special flying suit with fabric under the arms, allowing him to glide like a "flying squirrel." But no one has seen Ruppert since he leapt from a helicopter Thursday. There are fears his suit enabled him to fly far off course, and that he's now lost in rugged land around Mount Si, 30 miles east of Seattle. It's also possible that Ruppert’s brown and green suit is blending in with the terrain, making him even harder to locate. [Source]
