VIDEO: Extreme sports star makes world’s highest base jump from Mount Everest
Extreme sports superstar Valery Rozov executes the world’s highest base jump, leaping off the north face of Mount Everest.
The 48 year-old extreme sports enthusiast spent more than two years preparing for this jump, which included a great amount of time developing a special winged suit.
It took him four days to climb the massive mountain until he reached the jumping location just short of 24,000 ft.
After free-falling for a few seconds, he put his winged suit to the test, and soared through the air at speeds almost reaching 125 mph.
Rozov landed safely on the Rongbuk glacier at an altitude of 19,520 ft.
