Incredible, Frightening Two-Man BASE Jump From Kuala Lampur Tower

I found the video below and have been googling to find out where this took place.

Apparently Kuala Lampur, Malaysia, permits -- even invites -- parachuters to come and jump from its KL Tower.

Daredevils from 25 countries just jumped from the tower.

Mohd Akmal was among 103 jumpers participating in the Kuala Lumpur Tower International Jump Malaysia (KLTIJM) 2019 event.

Now 34, the Movie Animation Park Studios stunt performer said he felt "reborn" after his first jump from the 300m-high sky deck.

Malaysia is, it seems, sort of a haven for legalized daredeviltry:

KLTIJM is the last of a series of BASE jump events in Malaysia this year. The other locations for the events were the Alor Star Tower, Gua Damai Xpark in Batu Caves and Wisma Sanyan in Sibu.

Watch this jump. As one viewer said: "It's a rollercoaster of emotions." Indeed.




Some other jumps from the event which just took place in late September or earlu October:

Here are some highlights from the 2018 jumps:

If you want to start planning your 2020 basejump vacation in Kuala Lampur, go here.

Apparently they let novices jump. That page notes that the crew supervising these jumps sometimes takes a "Who cares?" attitude about jumping in bad winds.

And sometimes novices crash into the building and get hurt.

In a picture, you can see the jumpers queued up nuts to butts waiting to jump. They look like they're being rushed on to the jumping platform. It's got a fast-food base jumping look to it.

Still: Pretty great.

Related: Apparently there is a gang of base jumpers operating (illegally) in Fairfax, Virginia, right outside of Washington, DC.

One of the top suspects is a 68-year-old former Army ranger.

I'm not at all sure, but this video matches some of the details offered in the article:

So trying to track down the KL Tower jump, I came across other base jump videos. Here's a good one.

This looks like an actual nightmare.

Okay, here are 50 city base jumps in less than five minutes.

Click to 1:28 if you just want to see some real Ethan Hunt shit. It's a guy climbing up on top of an external elevator, and then jumping when it gets to the top of the hotel.

By the way: You know what's more dangerous than base jumping?

Being a shepherdess to an ornery ram who's just had it up to here with being bossed.
