Look out below! Man breaks world record for base jumps in 24 hours in Idaho
IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KBOI) —
Look out below!
One man has broken the world record for the most unassisted base jumps in 24 hours at the Snake River Canyon.
Miles Daisher threw himself off the bridge 63 times in one day. Base jumping is a popular pastime at the Snake River Canyon. Daisher's jumps were unassisted, which means he came back to his jump point each time by hiking, walking and climbing. In total, he climbed more than 30,000 feet. That's about 1,500 feet higher than Mount Everest!
The previous record was 61 jumps in 24 hours, held by Dan Weiland. Daisher now holds the title, along with the unofficial record for the most base jumps ever, with 4,520 jumps under his belt.
