August 22, 2011

DETROIT – Officials say a stunt wing walker has died after falling about 200 feet at an air show in southeastern Michigan.

A spokesman at Selfridge Air National Guard Base says wing walker Todd Green was trying to move from a plane to a helicopter when he fell Sunday at the base in Harrison Township, about 20 miles northeast of Detroit.

Technical Sgt. Dan Heaton says the accident happened about 1:30 p.m. He says an ambulance rushed Green to Mount Clemens Regional Medical Center. Hospital spokeswoman Diane Kish says Green died from his injuries.

The air show began Friday and ended Sunday.
