Daredevil Double Backflips Off 53ft Bridge


Note: the footage below isn't an outtake from Skyfall, The Fugitive or any other blockbuster to shoehorn in a perilous drop into a great ravine. Worryingly, it appears to be genuine.

It's hard to ignore the cinematic feel, of course, both in the fact that the foolhardy fellow not only survived pulling off a double backflip from the top of a 53ft bridge, but also that he had it filmed and edited into slow motion for the purpose of posting the spectacle onto his Youtube account.

Posting under the name of Heikkisnen, he said of the stunt: 'I just drove by and decided that I would hit it. Gotta get the adrenaline rush.'

For your own safety, we strongly advise you get your adrenaline rushes from heights of 52ft lower down. But feel free to watch this over, over and over.
