Skydiver #LukeAikins makes historic landing without parachute from 25,000 feet.

CALIFORNIA: American Luke Aikins leapt into the void at 25,000 feet on Saturday (Jul 30) with no parachute or wingsuit, becoming the first skydiver to land safely on the ground in a net. Aikins - who has done movie stunts - spent a year and a half preparing the death-defying feat, plummeting at 120 miles per hour in Simi Valley, California. Fox television broadcast the two-minute jump live on an hour-long reality TV special. Videos capturing the live coverage of the historic stunt are being shared on social media. #StrideHeavenSent Great Job Luke!! He made the 25,000 feet drop into the net!!
