There are certain people who love to take risks and live for excitement. They despise boredom and predictability and they defy logic and reasoning if there need be just to feel the need for speed, adrenaline rush and the thrill of doing the extremes. We call them daredevils.
Meet Brazilian-Swiss extreme athlete Laso Schaller, the man who holds the world record for the highest cliff-jump as he leaps from a 192-foot waterfall at Cascata del Salto in Maggia, Switzerland.
This 27-year-old canyoneer and high-diver completed the challenge by surviving a drop from a cliff that is taller than the Leaning Tower of Pisa, down into an 8-meter deep pool of aerated water. Going down at 76mph speed, he spent 3.5 seconds free falling.
This production was made possible by Red Bull Media House and was filmed in partnership with SRF Swiss Television. Moreover, this video became one of the most widely-circulated sports news highlight of August, 2015. Watch this daredevil and get ready to be at an all-time high as he sets a new world record leap-off a waterfall.
