Gary Connery is believed to have become the first person to jump out of a helicopter and land safely without deploying a parachute.

 

 

Connery used a "wingsuit" to make his descent from 2,400ft. The 42-year-old said he felt "elated" after landing on a pile of 18,600 cardboard boxes.

Normally I'm interested in recreating these wacky stunts...but I think I'll pass on this one. I'd still like to try a wingsuit, but not totally sure that I want to smash into a bunch of cardboard boxes at the end.
