An Australian woman has died in a base jumping accident in Malaysia, after her parachute failed to open.

Tantiky Lie Marion, 42, was conducting a practise jump from a 165-metre tall communications tower in the Malaysian city of Alor Setar.

Marion was with 19 other international jumpers training for the annual Kuala Lumpur Tower International Jump in Malaysia's capital city in October.

Base jumping is a popular sporting activity where parachutists jump from tall buildings, bridges and cliffs.

Eyewitnesses say that the woman fell to the ground after jumping off the tower and that her parachute failed to open.

The management of the Alor Setar tower confirmed the incident but gave no further details.
