A Norwegian base jumper survived a terrifying moment when the equipment he was using to launch himself off a mountain broke.

Dr Richard Henriksen fell off the edge of 3,000ft high cliff when the high bar he was using collapsed.

Luckily the father of five was quick enough to deploy his parachute which helped him to avoid a serious injury or possibly even death.

The dramatic incident in More og Romsdal, Norway was caught on camera by a local TV station.
