Nerves Of Steel: Man Completes Highest Ever Cliff Jump

Cliff diving is one of the most dangerous extreme sports in the world, so performing the highest cliff dive ever attempted takes some real bravery. Step forward Laso Schaller; a Brazilian daredevil who achieved just that in August 2015 and leaped from the Cascata del Salto, a 192 ft high waterfall in Switzerland. The leap of faith saw Schaller jump off a specially constructed platform at the top of the cliff and land in a small pool at the bottom of the waterfall. To put his achievements into perspective: the jump was 10 ft higher than the Leaning Tower of Pisa and Schaller was travelling at 74mph when he hit the water. The term ‘brave’ doesn’t even cover it!
