Record Jump off Burj Khalifa

Somebody call Guinness! Wait, someone already did. So what record are we talking about? Well, it is official: the highest successful base jump is in the record books after two French daredevils jumped from the world's tallest man-made structure, Dubai's Burj Khalifa.

Vince Reffet and Fred Fugen, professional base jumpers, performed two base jumps from a height of 828 meter Burj Khalifa on Monday.The previous holders of the record Emirati jumpers Nasser al-Neyadi and Omar al-Hegelan jumped from a distance of 672 meters, according to Gulf News.

“We feel happy for breaking the world record, but it wasn’t the main goal. We’ve been dreaming about base jumping from this special place, this unique place for three years now,” Fugen told Gulf News. Check out the crazy video below:
