This Man’s Extreme Hobby Ended His Life. This is His Brothers Breath Taking Tribute

When Reddit member jdrake90 (Jordan Drake’s) brother, Brian started an extremely dangerous hobby known as Wing Suit Flying, he had huge amounts of respect for him but was also worried more each time he saw his brothers adventures. He became one of the biggest names in the world of Wing Suit Flying and became simply known as “Drake”. In his video Drake, his brother was filmed flying very close to the ground at high speed in search of an adrenaline rush.

In Jordan’s mind, it was only a matter of time before his brother came to some serious harm. His brother chased round the world seeking the ultimate jump, which is what took him over to France where some of his best videos were filmed.

It was soon after that Brian Drake was involved in a tragic high speed accident. After being seriously injured, Drake (33) passed away in a hospital bed.

Jordan was quoted as saying “He was the most incredible, wise, kind, adventurous, funny, supportive, loving brother one could ever wish for,”.

In his memory, Drake’s family decided to put together a video of Drake’s finest work. In the clip below, Drake was the camera man filming his buddy doing what they enjoy the most.

Tragic story of a man that followed his heart and dreams every day. RIP Drake.
