Russian looks death in the face: He jumps alight from a building (video)

Alexander Chernikov jumped alight from a five-storey building

Climbing the tallest buildings and structures without any facilities, jumping into the abyss without a parachute and all sorts of crazy things have become a trademark of the Russians, but Alexander Chernikov went a step further.

The 22-year-old stuntman Chernikov decided to make an unprecedented leap – from the roof of a five-storey building and alight! The video shows how he was set on fire by another person and then jumped, somersaulted and landed in a pile of snow. The boy was not injured and he sad the jump had been well planned.

“All week we were looking for a good place to jump from. We finally found the building surrounded by snow”, said Alexander and explained that he had worn asbestos cloth to protect himself from being burnt, although he had had ordinary shoes on his feet.
