Man jumped with no parachute - level 2, A12

Gary Conner is from England. He decided to jump from a helicopter without a parachute. The helicopter was 730 metres high and he jumped into 18 000 paper boxes.

He used a wingsuit for his jump. A windsuit is a special suit which people use for flying. His wife was happy when he landed safe and Gary celebrated with a bottle of champagne.

Gary said that the flight was turbulent but amazing. Some people can think that Gary is crazy but for him it is a compliment. He likes what he is doing. Gary also played in films, for example Batman and Indiana Jones.

You can see his jump in the video.
