A former British paratrooper known as “The Flying Fish” attempted the world’s highest jump from a helicopter without a parachute.

The Flying Fish, Brian Beam, trained for two years to perform this jump. He set the World record for the highest jump from an aircraft into water, as well as the highest jump into British waters.

Beam attempted the jump in order to raise funds and funds for two charities: All Call Signs and Support Our Paras. Both charities work to provide mental health support to veterans.

During his attempt, Beam appeared to have hit the water at an awkward angle. Witnesses to his feat claim he was briefly unconscious before divers rescued him off the coast go Hayling Island, near Portsmouth. However, the ex-paratrooper was seen minutes later waving to cameras from a rescue raft, and chatted with paramedics before taking a precautionary trip to the hospital.

Guinness World Records has not yet verified Beam’s jump, but the results should be announced within the month.
