Four world records smashed in one amazing wingsuit jump

(CBS News) It's a beautiful day outside. It's also extremely hot almost everywhere. So how about we try to stay cool indoors and engage in some outdoor sports vicariously through the power of - wait for it - the Internet! Perhaps an amazing, record-breaking wingsuit jump will do the trick?

The heart-pumping video was posted by YouTube user jonmillsswns who writes about it:

This breath-taking footage shows the moment a flying DAREDEVIL smashes four world records in one death defying 37,265ft high WINGSUIT jump. Jhonathan Florez, 29, broke a staggering four records in just one jump when he leaped out of a plane above Guajira, in Colombia, on April 20. Astonishingly, as he reached speeds of up to 100mph he smashed the record for the longest duration wingsuit jump - a whopping 9 min and 6 sec. Jhonathan had to battle through temperatures as low as -45 as he picked up the record for greatest horizontal distance flown in a wing suit - a mammoth 16.315 miles.

You read that right: four world records were smashed with this one spectacular jump.
