World First - Skydiving



Martin Downs, a Britian currently living in South Africa has just become the first person to Skydive in Six continents in 150 Hours - just over 6 days. The record attempt was part of ProjectO , an attempt to raise funds for Aids Orphans in South Africa.

The above video is part 1 or 3 and you can see the other two videos by navigating to eh ProjectO website. All costs for the trip were covered by Martin and his family - almost R100,000, which meant that all funds raised for the record attempt went directly to ProjectO.

The record attempt began at SkydiveKZN, who are based at Cato Ridge near Durban, South Africa and ended in Vietnam.
