This is one of the lowest BASE jumps in the world – at only 98 feet – but that doesn’t make it less dangerous. Quite the opposite actually. Jumpers have just about a second to open up their parachute. This is why BASE jumping off the statue is illegal. You can see the famous Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner jumping from the statue’s arm in this video.
