This terrifying video released shows Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet leaping a startling 2,717 feet off of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, roughly twice the height of the Empire State Building. The duo, named “Soul Flyers,” set a new world record on Monday, cameraman in tow.
They are not the first the base jump off of the building. The Arabian Gazette reports they had a temporary platform built to add an additional 500 feet to break the world record.
