A group of 245 thrill-seekers, tied to ropes, jumped from a 30-metre tall bridge in a world-record attempt for "rope jumping". The death-defying event took place in Brazil’s Hortolandia. In the video, the participants were seen leaping from the bridge, each wearing white helmets, while tied together with a rope.
