When you are shooting for the TV it is often recommended that you do something amazing, something that is out of the box and people feel really attached to the incident to such an extent that they empathize with the character in question. Now mostly reality TV shows producers stage a lot of artificial incidents in such a manner that they seem real and also gets the show rating bar high rise.
Here in this video, the shooting is being done for a Norwegian program Normal Galskap, what the base jumper is attempting is a routine sky high jump. All has been checked and this is not certainly the first time he is attempting this in his life. He is confident and assured everyone of his safety and signaled for the jump. But what happened next was truly shocking. The bars that he was holding on to for the swinging motion collapsed moment after he jumped. It would have been a massive disaster if he wouldn’t have been able to open up the parachutes on time. Luckily the show producers do not increase their ratins on the expense of someone’s death. The guy was able to save his life with the help of the parachute or else he would have been shredded to pieces on his way to the bottom.
