For The Win

BASE jumpers Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet broke a world record when they leaped off a platform erected 500 feet above the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

They did this because they are crazy people.

People have jumped off this building before, so to ensure that they had the world record, the two jumpers put a platform on top of the spire above the building. The team apparently trained for three years for the death-defying leap.

Very nice visual with the red smoke, though, huh?

(Thanks to Business Insider for sharing.)
