Base jump from Bangkok's tallest building nearly goes horribly wrong

BASE jumping is can be a thrilling affair; that is if you execute it successfully.

Things however did not go so well for BASE jumper Espen Fadnes.

A video featured on Coconuts Bangkok shows how a straightforward jump almost turns into disaster for the daredevil.

Espen was attempting to complete a 300-meter jump off the Baiyoke Tower, the tallest building in Bangkok.

However, he misjudged his landing and crashed into a billboard, which sent him falling onto the street below.

How he was left with only a cut to his left foot was nothing short of a miracle.

Espen said the crash landing was 'more embarrassing than it was painful'.
