BASE jumper takes unexpected fall off cliff

Norwegian BASE jumper Richard Henriksen planned to swing around a metal bar and then launch himself off a 4,000-foot cliff. But the bar suddenly collapsed, sending him over the side of the cliff before he was ready. As this video shows, the father of five narrowly missed slamming into the rock face, and his parachute brought him safely to the ground.
