Skydiving with an umbrella (just like Mary Poppins)
(CBS News) Yesterday we showed you some extreme rope swinging off of a cliff ledge from Shay Carl and Devin Graham. And today we have another extreme for you that is also high-flying, but in a much more "Mary Poppins" kind of way. Watch skydiving done with an umbrella in the video above. And it goes without saying (though, I will) that you should never, ever try this at home.
Who needs a spoonful of sugar to go down when you've got gravity ready to do it for you! The equally epic and insane stunt done with a modified umbrella was done by professional skier and BASE jumper Erik Roner, and posted by GoPro who write about it:
Shot 100% on the HERO3® camera. Erik Roner puts the umbrella theory to the test in this hot air balloon skydive!Another big triple-rainbow salute of not knowing the definition of the word "fear" goes out to Erik Roner from all of us here at The Feed!
