    Will he, won't he? About to be shown live on Sky news, which you they are showing on their website.

    Madman jumps out of a helicopter at 2500ft and tries to land on a pile of cardboard boxes.

    Balls of steal.

    "If he miscalculates his approach he will have a split second to abort the jump and deploy an emergency parachute."

    Pussy.

    He'll be needing to steal some if he doesn't get the landing right.

    It doesn't actually mention anywhere whether he has to survive the landing.

    Yes he did, that's obviously why I wrote steal not steel.

    Sneak preview of the boxes he's landing on, look pretty sturdy.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Landing is easy. He's pretty much guaranteed to land. The issue is how much vertical speed he has when he does

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    A (Rumanian? Polish?) stewardess fell out of a plane without a parachute and survived falling 20,000 feet.
    I wouldn't recommend trying it though.

    I'd imagine the first 13,000 odd feet of falling aren't filled with too much with "hmmm the atmosphere is a little thin but if I hold my breath I'll be ok"
