Daredevil Makes A Daring Jump In The Slit Between Old Ships
Don’t get us wrong, but we think that adrenaline junkies are, like, the weirdest people. Folks who will go to incredible lengths to get the heart pumping and the blood flowing must have something going on in their heads!
Jokes aside, there are but a few sensations like the rush of adrenaline coursing through one’s body. While adrenaline is known as ‘the stress hormone’, its effects do not necessarily have to be detrimental. In fact, studies have shown that a little bit of adrenaline can actually be good for you. When your body is overwhelmed with adrenaline, your mind is focused, centered, and ready to deal with intellectual undertakings that much faster. It is almost like drinking a good, strong cup of coffee. Your entire senses are heightened, making you feel more alive.
Still, some people can handle it better than others. This guy, for example, can probably handle a bunch of the stuff, which is probably why he went to great heights to achieve the fix. Like, literally great heights. The clip, filmed using an action camera, shows the lad performing a dangerous activity by trying to fit into a tiny hole of water between ships.
Jason Kaysor and a couple of his friends went to a local shipyard where old and decommissioned ships went to live out their days in a pile of rust. Now, just walking across those vessels is dangerous enough, with so many old, rusty bits poking out from every angle. One deep probe from those and it is off to the hospital for your tetanus shot! But Jason took the thrill to a whole new level.
He grabs his GoPro camera, mounts it on his head and leaves his buddies on the deck, while he scales a ladder that takes him to a overhead bridge on one of the ships. His breathing is heavier as he struggles to keep his balance.
When he reaches the end of the beam, his breathing becomes more burdened, what with all the adrenaline coursing through his body. The daredevil takes a few deep, controlled breaths, makes sure his camera is on tight and measures out the distance he needs to jump over in order to reach the water below.
We can hear how his breathing becomes heavier and heavier as he is obviously bubbling with excitement. While the guy goes forwards and backwards, we may ask ourselves is he reconsidering his decision? is he going to get cold feet forsaking the crazy idea to leap in water so shallow? Or is he just really studying the depths of the water and the exact spot where he is going to take the dive? When he jumps, our hearts stop beating for a second, as we focus on the screen. Will he make it through? Next, we see bubbly waters and realize that his calculations were right!
We would like to believe that this is the most blood-chilling video we have seen so far, but that would be a lie. We do, however, have to mention a particular one, where a daredevil unicyclist rides along narrow girders of steel-frame bridge on the banks of the Danube river in Romania. Now that is an adrenaline rush!
