When I first heard about the Burj Khalifa base jump I didn’t believe it. I mean this building is huge. 2,716 feet huge! These two gentleman definitely had some stones.

Nasir Al Niyadi and Omar Al Hegelan are the two men responsible for the Burj Khalifa base jump. Check out the video if you need proof that this record breaking event happened. Fun fact: stare at the picture really hard and you can see a speck. That speck is either Al Niyadi or Al Hegelan. Stats for Record-Breaking Base Jumps Trending: Older & Mild
