A duo of daredevils race each other to the top of a 27-story abandoned building, only to jump out when they reach the top floor. We’re just glad they didn’t snag their chutes on any of the debris on the way up.
Extreme sport junkie Brad O’Neil combined two daring stunts in one, jumping his dirt bike high into the air over a lake off a 60-foot-high ramp, then pulling his parachute as he hits the apex of his jump.
