The world's first skydive without parachute

A stuntman has deliberately jumped out of a helicopter from 2,400ft (730m) in the air without a parachute.

Gary Connery was using an outfit called a "wingsuit", which allowed him to fly towards a controlled landing on a stack of cardboard boxes.

BBC News website reader Nick Middleton from Henley on Thames sent in his video of the stunt.
