Thrill-seekers catapulted from bridge at base-jumping event

Hundreds of people have voluntarily jumped off an 876ft-high (267m) bridge in West Virginia.

The base-jumping event was part of the Bridge Day festival in Fayetteville on Saturday.

Some people were ejected from the bridge using a catapult before releasing their parachutes.
