Two French daredevils broke a Guinness World Record for the highest base jump after jumping from the peak of the Burj Khalifa. Professional base jumpers Vince Reffet and Fred Fugen broke the record after performing two base jumps from the top of the tower in Downtown Dubai. Emirati jumpers Nasser Al Neyadi and Omar Al Hegelan held the previous world record after jumping 672 meters down the tower in 2010. The video shows Reffet and Fugen doing two wing-suit jumps from a three-meter by one-meter platform on top of the tower. The duo sported yellow jumpsuits with inflatable pressurized nylon cells that act as wings to help jumpers glide in the air like birds. The duo said it took them a year to prepare for the record jump through the help of SkyDive Dubai. The jump was done early morning Monday to minimize dangers from strong wind speeds at the tower.
