Base Jumping of the Burj Dubai. World Record!
A video of BASE jumping off the world’s tallest building, the Burj Dubai, also known as the Burj Khalifa. It stands at 828m high, that’s 2717 feet. The previous holder of the record was the CN at 553.3m and the Taipai 101 at 509.2m.
This was the first attempt ever on the world’s new talles skyscraper, on May 2008. They are so early, that the building is still under constructions, with the windows on the Burj Khalifa’s highest floors are still being installed. The two base jumpers, Robin Schmidt, and Jan Bednarz, climb up stairs the whole way up, over 160 floors. They then jump out from the windows of the Burj Dubai after enjoying the amazing view.
The two base jumpers are using helmet cams, allowing us to see this amazing, world record breaking, historic moment in BASE jumping.
There is a tense moment in this base jumping video as one of the base jumpers wearing a helmet cam lands in the construction area. He is spotted by a security guard and is being chased. Watch the video to find out if he escapes!
