Base Jump Over Horizontal Bars Fail

Posted by BloopZone on Oct. 12, 2012

BASE jumper Richard Henriksen was performing the stunt for a TV show on the NRK TV network in Norway. Henriksen made his first rotation around the metal bar but it suddenly collapsed. The father-of-five then flies off the cliff head-first, and those watching can be heard letting out a huge gasp. In an extremely lucky chain of events, Henriksen survived the 1200m fall. He narrowly missed falling against the rock face of the cliff and managed to open his parachute on the way down, NRK TV reports.
