Death Jump - Franz Reichelt jumps off the Eiffel Tower [HD]. On 4th February 1912,
wearing a crazy homemade parachute contraption Reichelt hovers on the brink for a while having doubts before suddenly jumping to his death. A crowd watches from below including most of the Parisien media. They then measure the depth of the hole made by the impact of his body.
