Amazing New World Record B.A.S.E. Jump [VIDEOS]

In 1912, a tailor named Franz Reichelt jumped from the first deck of the Eiffel Tower, testing his invention, the coat parachute. He was killed trying it out. It was his first ever attempt. Perhaps Reichelt unknowingly, though, also invented a daring sport we call B.A.S.E. jumping, where participants jump from fixed objects like buildings, antennas, spans and earth, getting your b-a-s-e.

As of March 2014, B.A.S.E. fatalities were at 228 deaths since 1981. What motivates folks to climb real high, jump off and soar down towards earth until a parachute opens and breaks the fall? The thrill of speed, falling and landing like Icarus wanted to, but failed to!

In this exhilarating video, you’ll see the most extraordinary B.A.S.E. jump from a building ever! Three dare devils leap from the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, setting a new world’s record for Guinness. Remember the names Frédéric Fugen and Vince Reffet because they will be the world team to beat should you decide to jump off a cliff or something like that!
