A BASE jump from the World's Highest Building - Burj Khalifa Sets World Record



Two French skydivers jumped off the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet set a new Guinness World Record for tallest BASE jump from a building, with their leap this week. The Burj Khalifa is 2,700 feet tall, standing more more than half a mile tall. 

BASE jumping refers to jumping off stationary objects and is an acronym for these objects: building, antenna, span and Earth (such as a cliff). Before the jump Monday, the duo practiced for a week jumping off a mountain near Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland, which is almost the same height as the Burj Khalifa, according to the Guinness World Record website.
