Woah! Skydiver Jumps 25,000-Feet From Airplane Without Parachute
Woah! Luke Aikins, the modern day Evel Knievel, attempted and achieved world's first on Saturday (July 3), when he leaped from an airplane with no parachute.
He skydived 25,000 feet above Simi Valley, Calif. and landed into a 100-foot by 100-foot net unscathed.
Aikins, a self-described "member of the Red Bull Air Force, professional skydiver, BASE jumper, stuntman, pilot ... (and) aviation expert," did the astonishing stunt, billed "Heaven Sent," live on TV while his family and supporters watched from the landing site.
"I'm here to show you that if we approach it the right way and we test it and we prove that it's good to go, we can do things that we don't think are possible," he told Q13 Fox.
