IT seems that hardly a week passes without some group of parachutists throwing themselves off Benidorm’s hotel Bali in the name of extreme sport.
However, the mundane regularity of these events, which are now somewhat taken for granted due to their frequency, was shattered, along with the jaw of one of the jumpers when his descent went horribly wrong.
Luckily, a broken jaw was all that was suffered as a gust of wind took the man onto the roof of a nearby restaurant.
With the increasing popularity of base jumping and the Bali Hotel’s desire to attract publicity through hosting such spectaculars, it may soon be publicized for all the wrong reasons should a descent really go wrong.
