Body of Boulder speed flyer found in Switzerland

LAUTERBRUNNEN, SWITZERLAND - The body of a Boulder man who went missing after "speed flying" in Switzerland was recovered last week.

According to a Facebook page dedicated to the search, DNA evidence confirmed Fast's body was found August. 25.

Fast and six other people planned to "speed fly," which means part paraglide - part ski down Jungfrau Mountain in March. After conditions deteriorated, six people eventually made it off the mountain safely. Fast, however, did not.
