Luke Aikins just did the unthinkable on Saturday in Simi Valley, Calif. This guy skydived 25,000 feet from an airplane and landed into a 100-foot by 100-foot net unscathed—without a parachute—and can live to tell about it to his friends and family.
Is this dude nuts?? Yes. Is this video above probably one of the most incredible things you will ever see in your life? Hell yeah!
Aikins is basically the Evel Knievel of the new millennium. Both men were unfearful of death with their mind-boggling stunts that left all their witnesses aghast. The difference between these two men is that Knievel tried to clear the Grand Canyon and fell in, breaking just about every bone in his body. And most who saw that probably felt bad for him and thought he was stupid for doing that simultaneously. As for Aikins, he just cheated death with millions watching, and if he died, we would probably think the same thing upon potentially seeing him become an IRL version of a Wile E. Coyote cartoon falling off a huge cliff.
Let's just hope this guy doesn't do this again. Landing with no parachute after diving 25,000 feet is more than enough to prove that he's the craziest man on earth.
