This is the heartbreaking moment when a man jumps into the abyss of Yosemite National Park in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California.
The daredevil films himself with a 360-degree camera as he jumps from a viewing platform that is more than 300 meters above the rocks below.
The footage shows the man hurtling down the side of the mountain when the rope suddenly tightens and makes him swing in the air.
The daredevil jumped over the cliff edge in California’s Yosemite National Park, attached to a safety line, filming himself with a special 360-degree camera
Friends of the man also filmed him after he dived more than 70 meters into the valley
The man used a safety line to help climbers climb the cliff
According to the video notes, “This rope swing has only been rigged three times and twice by our crew.
It is rigged from the currently longest highline in Yosemite, which is 300 meters long. The jump is 70 meters (230 feet) into the abyss. ‘
The footage, filmed earlier this month, has been widely viewed on the Internet for the man’s seemingly fearless actions.
About 200 people a year have to be rescued after an accident while climbing Yosemite National Park.
Search and rescue teams blame selfies for much of their workload, as people look for more daring images to post on their Instagram pages.
