You Kind Of Cheated: Stuntman Becomes First Skydiver To (Purposefully) Jump And Land With No Parachute
Stuntman (or possibly just tired-of-living man) Gary Connery became the first person to purposefully jump out of a helicopter at 2,400-feet with no parachute and survive. Gary dove with a modified wingsuit and crash-landing into a giant pile of boxes, which, as far as I'm concerned, was cheating and cancels the accomplishment. Please, a pile of boxes? YOU LAND IN THE GRASS LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. Oh hey guys -- did you hear? I became the first person to spend an hour in a great white shark tank and survive. "Let me guess -- the shark was already dead." Soooooooooo f***ing dead. It stunk so bad I puked in my snorkel.
Hit the jump for a poorly shot video of the feat.
Thanks to Jasper, who jumps out of helicopters with no parachute all the time because they've already landed. GERONIMO! Shit I think I rolled my ankle.
