Trump said he was 'viciously attacked' by father of slain soldier

Do not - do not - try this at home. 

Luke Aikin became the first person to jump out of a plane without a parachute and live to tell the tale on Saturday in California. 

Somehow, knowing he nailed the landing doesn't make the video any less terrifying. 

He fell 25,000 feet and landed on a net that about a third of the size of a football field, USA Today reports

That's the new world record for the highest free-fall. 

Aikins was told right before the fall that the weather conditions might force him to need a parachute, but he ended up taking it off at the last second. 

His team live-streamed the action on Periscope. 

Would you ever jump out of a plane with no parachute?
