Crazy is right Ray I never would think about doing something like this. I remember seeing this on the news yesterday and I thought at the time that this guy needed his head examined by a psychiatrist. Even parachuting out of an airplane isn't for me but you are right this is just plain crazy.

They tested this before hand with a dummy and it failed. But this screwball decided to do it anyway. Such talent!

Was just watching this on TV. Noticed he just made the net at the edge. I think if he landed just several feet over, he would have been a bag of bones! I think they used another dummy, Norm.

I agree!!! While it did work and I'm sure worked well in theory, it would seem to me one little miscalculation, wind gust or something could have turned it into disaster.

And what gets me...the guy's wife and 4 year old son were there watching. As it turns out, the 4 year old slept through it, but can you image if he had gone way you un-see that ever.
