Stunt goes terribly wrong for base jumper in Norway

Saturday, October 13, 2012

A daredevil in Norway was said to be only 'centimeters from death' when a stunt at the edge of a cliff went terribly wrong.

Richard Henriksen was performing acrobatics near the cliff when the stand he was using broke, flinging him over the edge, 1,200 meters above the ground.

Henriksen managed to open his parachute just seconds before smashing into the ground. One person who witnessed the fall said everyone was certain he had died.
