KL Tower International Jump Malaysia 2020
19 April, 2020
Novice Malaysian BASE jumper Aziz Ahmad has been notorious for sabotaging the safety of the annual KL Tower BASE jumping event for a number of years. When relatively new KL Tower CEO Datuk Rozlan Mohamed and KL Tower Events Manager Mohd Dzulfiqhary Ibrahim appointed Aziz Ahmad to be the BASE Jumping Organiser for their annual BASE jumping event in 2019, they were effectively demanding serious accidents or death to occur. In recent years a very experienced BASE organiser went to extraordinary measures to neutralise Aziz’s continued negligence, which successfully eliminated tower strikes from the event for the first time ever, along many other types of serious accidents that have caused horrific injuries in the past. It is beyond any understanding why new KL Tower managers were doing everything they could to bring the carnage back. This level of arrogance and reckless disregard for participant safety has not been seen since 2010, when previous KL Tower managers were naively very determined to bring a fatality to their events despite strong warnings given to them.
The job of BASE Jumping Organiser should only be assigned to someone with ten times Aziz’s level of BASE jumping experience, and someone with a much higher level of integrity. But since experienced BASE jumpers are not willing to facilitate or tolerate the insistent negligence of new KL Tower management, they found very inexperienced BASE jumpers that would. KL Tower’s business model which focuses on a constant push for “MORE” is not a suitable match for the high level of caution and respect that the high risk activity of BASE jumping always demands.
Aziz did not disappoint KL Tower manager’s seeming desire to show the world just how negligent they all could be, decaying event standards, and eliminating the majority of event knowledge and participant education. Aziz led the carnage with a shocking canopy wrap due to his own carelessness, inattention, and lack of jumping experience.
