Man Ties Helium Balloons To Lawn Chair And Flies Away


Extreme skier and skydiver enthusiast Eric Roner recently tied 90 balloons to a lawn chair, rose to 8,000 feet into the sky, and then started shooting off the balloons with a rifle. He caught the entire escapade on GoPro cameras.

It ain’t exactly Disney’s Up, but it is interesting to watch, especially considering that GoPro has kinda become the standard in such extreme videos. Other adventurers have used GoPros to speed through an Olympic luge, hang out with Great White Sharks, and skydive into active volcanoes. Let’s hope we don’t ever get to see an extreme stunt turn into a GoPro snuff video.
