Ex-paratrooper Creates New Parachuteless Jump Record – A former paratrooper has attempted a record for jumping from an aircraft into water without a parachute.
John Bream, 34, nicknamed “the Flying Fish”, dropped about 130ft (40m) from a helicopter off Hayling Island on the Hampshire coast.
Support divers said he was briefly unconscious when he hit the water and was taken to hospital as a precaution.
He was raising money for psychological state charities for services personnel.
The former member of the Parachute Regiment from Havant, Hampshire, fell about four seconds before hitting Solent at about 80mph (130km/h).
Divers who reached Mr Bream after the jump said he had landed awkwardly and was briefly unconscious after hitting his head.
He was later seen walking and chatting with paramedics as he was being checked over.
Cash raised from Mr Bream’s attempt are going to be donated to the All Call Signs and therefore the Support Our Paras charities.
Speaking in July, he said knowing veterans who had taken their own lives was “so painful”.
“The transition from the military is difficult but i would like to point out that we do not got to sleep in the past and that we all can still achieve brilliance,” he said.
A spokesperson for Guinness World Records said it had been still awaiting evidence of Mr Bream’s attempt and will not verify it until then.
