VIDEO: 'Jetman' flies over Rio de Janeiro

The Swiss daredevil flew over the city before landing on a Copacabana beach.

DAREDEVIL ADVENTURER Yves Rossy (or ‘Jetman’) has carried out another incredible jump, this time over Rio de Janeiro.

Rossy has previously flown over the Grand Canyon, the Swiss Alps and the English Channel with his custom-built jetpack which are operated by hand but steered using the shoulders, body and legs.
