Kuala Lumpur, 27th August 2007: BASE Jumping is considered a dangerous sports because from a height of 300 metres, without a parachute, it takes only 10 to 12 seconds to hit ground. The jumper must allow a free fall of about three seconds to clear the tower-head section before deploying his chute. In this picture, the jumper is still at 'horizontal' position, due to wind, even though he is nearing ground.
