Laso Schaller broke the cliff-diving world record by jumping off the 193-foot (58.8 metre) Cascata del Salto waterfall in Switzerland into a tiny pool of water.

The stunt is impressive and heart-stopping, but Schaller’s used to play daredevil; he is a canyoning expert who regularly jumps off 25 metre, 30 metre or even 35 metre cliffs. No big deal.

By coming out in one piece after hitting the water at more than 75 miles an hour, 27-year-old Schaller put his name down in the history books.
