Florida "wing-walker" plunges to his death

By Rebecca Lewis. CREATED Oct 20, 2013

Florida (KTNV) -- Spectators watched in horror as a stunt "wing-walker" plunged to his death after he fell off a plane at an air show Saturday.

62-year-old stuntman Mark Curto was attempting a wing walking maneuver when officials said he fell to his death in front of stunned onlookers, including children.

Investigators said Curto fell from just 1,000 feet, which is far too low to open his parachute and land to safety.
