A stunt wing walker has died after falling about 200 feet at an air show in south-eastern Michigan, US.

A spokesman at Selfridge Air National Guard Base says wing walker Todd Green was trying to move from a plane to a helicopter when he fell at the base in Harrison Township, about 20 miles north-east of Detroit.

Technical Sgt Dan Heaton said an ambulance rushed Mr Green to Mount Clemens Regional Medical Centre, where he died from his injuries.
