Daring lad films himself jumping from 129ft tower block in incredible POV video


A daring stuntman released a video of a point-of-view leap into the ocean from a 129ft apartment block.

The daredevil, equipped with GoPro cameras fixed to his face and wrist, filmed his walk up the 12-storey building and onto the roof.

He then casually walked to the edge where he peered below into the sea.

After picking his spot the man leapt off, feet first.

It seemed as if the man was going to crash into the pier but he managed to direct his footing to land smoothly into the water.

The footage then cuts to the lad smacking the surface of the ocean and going under the waves.

The clip ends with the jump in slow-motion and gives viewers a unique perspective into what it is like to fall from an incredible height.

The unmissable footage was released on Friday (October 14) and has been watched just under 900,000 times.

The lad said the jump took place in Newport Harbour in Rhode Island, US, and even admitted himself that it was “insane”.

One impressed commenter wrote: “What”s more impressive the actual jump or the fact he stands there for only 10 seconds and jumps.

“I jumped 60ft into a quarry and it took me 10 minutes to convince myself. Great video.”

However others were dismayed at the life-threatening jump.

One described the man as: “Brave. Stupid, but brave.”

Another said he was a: “Professional idiot.”
