Daredevil Base Jumper Frontflips 9 Times Off A Tower

Do you live on top of a giant telecommunications mast? No? Great - then there's little reason for us to introduce this death-defying footage with the timeworn phrase ‘Don’t try this at home’.
 
As any person with a shred of intellect over the workings of gravity, lofty heights and a fragile human body travelling at great speeds should know that this feat is one that should only be left to professional daredevils - like base-jumper Mark Broderick.
 
Captured on his own GoPro as well as that of his trailing companion JT Holmes, we see Broderick attempt to perform nine flips from a communications tower before releasing his chute and gliding his way to safety. That’s right – nine! Hell, we'd be impressed at six and a half.
 
Needless to say the room for error is minimal. One somersault too many and our hero would surely be meeting his maker, though as it was, it comes together. Just.
 
And if you’re wondering why you lost signal the other day, this’ll be it.
