Basejump from Burj Khalifa

One more extrem thing from Dubai, but we don’t even get surprised…I am just wondering, when people try base jumping for the first time, how do they know what’s need to be done?

Two men in 2010 jumped off the Burj Khalifa. Extrem. Freaky. Amazing.

They landed almost on Dubai Mall…or should I say they hopped in?
