WATCH: Diver Jumps from Helicopter into River


The Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series will make its U.S debut next week in Boston, but today the organizers of the event provided New Yorkers with a show of their own.

In an effort to publicize the competition, high dive world champion Orlando Duque jumped from 75 feet from a helicopter into the Hudson river. Duque only had three seconds to attempt a flying back tuck before reaching the surface of the river.

The World Series had already traveled to 4 other locations around the world before stopping in New York City for just one day.
