Norway (www.incnow.tv) - First of all you should know this guy is okay.

Veteran base jumper, Richard Henrikson, was set to perform a stunt for a TV show in Norway.

As the host looked-on, Henrikson spun around the bar before the jump. That’s when the bar broke!

Henrikson's quick reflexes saved him though.

He almost hit the cliff but managed to open his parachute!
