Discovery Cancels Everest Jump Live

After a tragic avalanche killed at least 13 people Friday, the Discovery Channel has cancelled the live broadcast of Everest Jump Live, scheduled for May 11.

The network had planned to air daredevil Joby Ogwyn’s attempt at the first wing-suit flight off the top of Mount Everest. The primetime event will no longer take place.

The Discovery Channel released a statement Sunday saying, “In light of the overwhelming tragedy at Mount Everest and respect for the families of the fallen, Discovery Channel will not be going forward with Everest Jump Live. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the whole Sherpa community.”

Discovery Channel is available to all Suddenlink customers who have what is commonly known as Expanded Basic TV service.
