ESPN Feature Video: Wing And A Prayer. Most base jumpers agree that it’s just a matter of time before they’re seriously injured, but some like Jeb Corliss wanted to die and found the sport of base jumping and wingsuit flying the only reasons to live. In his case most jumpers agree that it’s only a matter of time before Jeb kills himself while others are more than willing to help him achieve his thrill seeking goals.
Is what he does selfish since he has family and risks his life whenever he jumps and continues to push the envelope or is he an athlete and it’s just a dangerous sport like any other?
Watch this amazing sport in action and learn about Jeb’s new goal of skydiving with a wingsuit and landing without a parachute.
I imagine he’ll never get the funding for his Vegas stunt as the chances of him dying are well above 50%, but then again people love seeing stuff like this so who knows.
Here’s another clip I found of Jeb Corliss wingsuit flying on the NBC Today Show.
