In a mind-blowing incident, a team of two hundred skydivers in Chicago attempted to break a world record. The video of the event went widely viral on the internet.
Shared on Instagram by world skydiving champion Karine Joly, the video features no less than two hundred skydivers, dressed in colorful diving suits, traversing the sky holding hands. Later in the clip, they can be seen slowly drifting away from each other while trying to break a world record in the Windy City.
For those unaware, the previous world record for a 200 lane vertical formation was set in 2015 with 164 skydivers.
The post caption read, “D4 Jump 1 First pod on a bridge With @simonpwhittle @_im_sponsored @gregcrozier.airwax @noahbahnson @domikiger.”
According to reports, the jump was made from a height of 19,000 feet and the divers had just 60 seconds of working time to break the world record. They were falling at a speed of up to 180 miles per hour.
Posted on August 26 and since then, the video has garnered over 22.3 million views so far, along with tons of comments from Instagram users.
One person wrote, “I really want to do this” and another comment read, “Who else saw this with their phone flipped sideways? baptize”
The third comment read: “Iron man all suits assemble” and the fourth user wrote: “Awesome, enjoy it if you can, wish I had a car to do it”
While some joked about calling them “avengers” and “power rangers”, many simply ditched the heart and love emojis.
