Most people’s first instinct when looking across a 5m gap with a 12m drop isn’t to think ‘I could jump that’.

But for a Surfers Paradise daredevil on Saturday, that was exactly what he thought. And did. 

In a video filmed by onlookers from the 39th floor of the Chevron Mantra on the Gold Coast, the man paces to the edge of the building.

He then tries to judge how far he has to leap and how much elevation he needs to make is safely across.

He psyches himself up like an Olympian long jumper for what could be the last leap he’ll ever make, by bouncing up and down and kicking his legs back and forth. 

A friend with him on the roof watches anxiously. 

The man then walks to the other edge of the roof – which is about 18m across – he’s on and after a few more minutes of loosening his limbs takes off for his leap of faith.

He hits top speed as he gets to the edge and thrusts himself into the unknown. 

The jumper is seen halfway across the 5m gap, with a 12m drop below him

The man barely makes it across, rolls a couple of times and gets up and makes his way back to the building he jumped from, which is connected by another route. 

‘Oh, my God,’ and the other saying ‘He made it!’ two voices from behind the camera excalimed.

A commenter on Facebook added: ‘Omg I felt sick watching it’, while the woman who posted the video replied ‘oh don’t worry my heart sank also when he jumped!!! I was getting ready to call an ambulance.’ 

Queensland Police are investigating the jump.
