Emergency services were called to the property just after 4.45pm on Easter Sunday after receiving reports that a paratrooper had suffered serious injuries.

Distraught onlookers had attempted CPR, before paramedics took over and tried to save Mr Rouchecouste, but the 36-year-old could not be recovered.

Tributes poured in for the wingsuit master, with his sister-in-law saying he will live on through his “two divinely beautiful children”.

“Adventure was your middle name. You let us do what you loved the most, and for this grace we are grateful to you – even if you were too young too, too soon,’ she posted on social media.

“Marc, even if you are no longer with us, you are dear to our hearts.

A former skydiving friend, Doug Mahu, described him as a “legend” in the sport.

“We both learned to skydive around the same time, so we did a lot of skydiving together,” he said.

“I hadn’t seen him for a while as I haven’t jumped for over a year, but the man was a legend.”

A former neighbor at the family home said he was “heartbroken for his partner and his children”.
