Wingsuited daredevil splits Rio skyscrapers

A video of thrill seekers Ludovic Woerth and Jokke Sommer performing a wingsuit flight between two Rio de Janeiro skyscrapers has gone viral.

I know it's another one of those Red Bull stunts that make the highlight of your day —i.e. filling out your NCAA brackets — seem absolutely lame but this jump is worth taking a look anyway.

The pair leaped from tiny ultra light planes soaring over the early morning clouds.  The daring duo specifically chose their jump to take place at 5:45 a.m., twenty minutes before the first commercial flights are scheduled to be in the area.

Sommer split the buildings like a human field goal at 460-feet above the ground while Woerth filmed from above.

Just don't try this at home kids — it's totally illegal.
