Wingsuited Skydiver Plummets Chuteless into Cardboard


42-year old stuntman Gary Connery jumped out of a helicopter 2,400 ft above Oxfordshire. Wearing a wingsuit and an emergency parachute (which he did not deploy) he glided downwards at 80mph, only to slam-land into a well-arranged pile of 18,600 cardboard boxes.

Connery is the first to attempt such a stunt. Holding a giant bottle of champagne after the jump, he said he felt “elated”. (BBC)
