Watch two daredevils BASE jump off the tallest building in the world

The pair of jumpers set a World Record for BASE jumping off the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

ALL THOSE WITH acrophobia (that’s a fear of heights) look away now.

World Champion BASE jumpers Vince Reffet and Fred Fugen have set a new World Record for their jump off the very top of the Burf Khalifa tower in Dubai.

Vince Reffet said of the feat:

When I came to Dubai for the first time three years ago and I saw the tower, I thought this is the dream, it’s the highest building in the world.

The structure is 828 metres tall – the length of over seven football pictches.

Of course, they took a video. Gulp.
