Offbeat Video

By Ben Walley 

A GROUP of daredevil skydivers have been filmed base jumping from a CRANE in stomach churning footage. 

Carlos Briceno – who has been skydiving for 19 years – said the group took advantage of the building work in Benidorm, Spain. 


The 44-year-old, Deland, Florida, said he always “dreamt about flying” as a kid and has now done more than 9,000 skydives and 800 base jumps. 

Carlos said: “There is no better feeling than flying your body like a bird. When you do it, you are 100 per cent present, there are no other thoughts in your mind.

“This video came after going to a base jumping competition in the Hotel Bali in Benidorm, Spain. 

“That location is very nice to jump different buildings due to its easy access to the buildings around the area. 


“The Tempo Building is one of the tallest in the area and they were finishing it and had the crane still attached, so we decided to get on the crane and jump it. 

“It was a Sunday so there were no workers in the building so the party was on. 

“We were giggling like kids from nerves and from how crazy it was. 

“It was for sure one of my favourite jumps.”
