This Guy’s About to BASE Jump into a Skyscraper’s Rooftop Pool…

If you’re not familiar with the sport of BASE jumping, it’s basically just skydiving to the extreme. Standing for Building, Antenna, Span (bridges), and Earth (cliffs), the daredevil sport’s practitioners have become infamous for their death-defying stunts.

In the video below, BASE enthusiast John Van Horne used a helmet-mounted GoPro to take us on a first-person ride as he jumped into a 34-story tall skyscraper’s rooftop pool in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. To jump and drop as long as he did, and still wind up 1200 feet off the ground is exhilarating just to watch, so we can only imagine what it’s like to do it firsthand.

To call the stunt dangerous would be a massive understatement, and we can’t help but be in awe of the tremendous skill John demonstrates to land in such a small target jumping from one high altitude spot to another. Watch the insane video for yourself below.

11 People That Cheated Death. And Probably Need To Change Their Underwear.

Someone was on the side of these people at just the right time, because the situations they found themselves in — and managed to escape unscathed from — will shock you. Every single one of them should get down and kiss the earth because they’re all incredibly lucky to be able to do so still. You’ll probably have to watch some of these at least a few times before you’ll be able to believe that some of them even made it out alive. It was definitely these people’s day.

Plummeting Over a 60ft Waterfall: See the Video Through His Eyes!

Dane Jackson is wired a bit differently than the rest of us. Always on the hunt for adventure, he has already traveled through 49 states and 11 countries in search of the perfect adrenaline rush. And at not even 21 years old, he’s got a lot left to do yet. With 6 months on the road per year traveling to kayaking events and clinics, the accomplishments are racking up fast. So when he set his eyes on the 60 foot waterfall La Tomata in Veracruz, Mexico he of course thought what anyone would: I need to go down that thing head first. Well, okay most of us aren’t the thrill seekers Dane is so that wouldn’t be the first, second, or even 487th thing that came to mind, but it’s cool to be able to watch from the sidelines. In this video, we ride along as he heads down the fall in his trusty kayak with a camera attached to its back capturing every last split second of the exhilarating drop. Enjoy!
