Richard Henriksen was about to BASE jump off a high bar when the metal rod he was somersaulting around suddenly collapsed, sending him flying off a 4000ft cliff. The veteran BASE jumper was performing the stunt for a Norwegian TV show when the accident happened. Luckily, he narrowly missed falling against the rock face of the cliff and managed to open his parachute on the way down.
