Video: Man jumps from balcony using parachute he bought online

A man in Brazil was filmed base jumping from an apartment balcony using a parachute he reportedly bought online.

A video posted to YouTube by user Erbert Richens shows a man preparing to jump from a balcony at a Brazilian apartment building while a woman appears to attempt to talk him out of it.


The man jumps, and his parachute — which he reportedly bought on the Internet — opens seconds later and he glides safely to the ground.

Commenters on Reddit suggested the man’s technique indicates he is an experienced parachutist.
