You Kind Of Cheated: Stuntman Becomes First Skydiver To (Purposefully) Jump And Land With No Parachute

no-parachute.jpg

Stuntman (or possibly just tired-of-living man) Gary Connery became the first person to purposefully jump out of a helicopter at 2,400-feet with no parachute and survive. Gary dove with a modified wingsuit and crash-landing into a giant pile of boxes, which, as far as I'm concerned, was cheating and cancels the accomplishment. Please, a pile of boxes? YOU LAND IN THE GRASS LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. Oh hey guys -- did you hear? I became the first person to spend an hour in a great white shark tank and survive. "Let me guess -- the shark was already dead." Soooooooooo f***ing dead. It stunk so bad I puked in my snorkel.

Hit the jump for a poorly shot video of the feat.

Thanks to Jasper, who jumps out of helicopters with no parachute all the time because they've already landed. GERONIMO! Shit I think I rolled my ankle.

    LoL 20 feet of boxes. Land your feet on concrete and then ill be impressed.

  • matt

    he jumped out of a helicopter and landed on boxes. In my book thats pretty fucking awesome and thats coming from a skydiver.

  • Ed

    Boxes! F that. I heard this and imagined him landing on his feet on the grass and walking away with his big brass balls clanking together. All he did was fall onto something soft.

    This was pretty impressive, however I would of preferred to land on one of those giant airbags--a softer landing with no paper cuts.

    I'm not impressed with this guys lack of Showmanship. This is what it's about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

    seen here crashing into a homeless castle.

  • Joe Crocker

    isn't jumping out of a helicopter and landing with no parachute just called falling and getting lucky you lived?

  • You can only cheat death with an invisibility cloak.

  • Bruce Tahoe

    he is worthless and weak. My sister used to be thrown into piles of boxes and was none the worse for wear.

  • Justice Law

    I wonder what they did with all of the packing beans.
