Laso Schaller’s World Record Cliff Jump

59 meters (193 ft) is a long way when you’re looking down, perched on a cliff and ready to jump into a tiny patch of water.  But that’s not a problem for Laso Schaller, a guy with titanium balls who just attained a new world record in cliff jumping.

The 27-year-old professional kayaker Schaller accepted the challenge of making a little promotion for Red Bull at taking the record for the highest cliff diving ever.  Miraculously, he came out unharmed after hitting the water at an organ-squashing 123km/h.  The jump took place at ‘Cascata del Salto’ waterfall in Maggia, Switzerland (if you are keen on making the attempt yourself).  Check out the breathtaking video below
