Friday Freakout: High Bar BASE Jump Goes Horribly Wrong

Posted by Andrew R.

Every time I see a BASE jump, Im always thinking, “You know what this needs… more gymnastics. Particularly, the high bar!” It turns out Norwegian BASE jumper Richard Henriksen had the same thought and did just that. Unfortunately for him, the stunt goes horribly wrong and the high bar structure collapses at the edge of the cliff. Not only does Richard survive, but luckily he avoids being struck by the rod and chains that fall along with him. What do you think: cool concept or bad idea to begin with?
