Millions of people across the globe held their breath as American skydiver Luke Aikins jumped out of a plane to fall into a net 25,000 feet (7,620 m) below. The daring stunt is now in the history books as the first complete jump without a parachute.
A skydiver has made history by becoming the first person to jump 25,000 feet without a parachute.
Luke Aikins, 42, a veteran of 18,000 jumps, completed the stunt without mishap, landing almost in the middle of the 100ft by 100ft net.
Taking only a few moments to regain his composure, Mr Aikins dusted himself off, clambered out of the net and jumped into the arms of his very relieved wife, Monica.
The leap, which was broadcast by Fox, was watched by other members of the family and a crowd of well-wishers packed into an improvised spectator stand in the California desert.
