Video: Kayaker Plunged 127 Feet Off Waterfall... and Survived

Faced with this awesome waterfall, most of us would be happy to stand at the side and enjoy the view.

For one man, however, that wasn't enough. Pedro Olivia risked his life by jumping into his kayak, paddling straight over the edge - and dropping an astonishing 127 feet off the Salto Belo falls in central Brazil.

He fell head first for 2.95 seconds before hitting the churning waters below at 70mph.

And after vanishing at the base of the falls for a few heart-stopping minutes, he reappeared to claim a new world record in waterfall descents.

The 26-year-old, who has spent the last four years searching his country for the perfect location, shattered the previous 108ft record.
