GWR 2015

The great jump from 2015

2015 record

73-year-old daredevil Ray Woodcock has rolled back the years by setting a new British bungee jumping record which he shared live with his family.  Former cabbie Ray Woodcock set a new British record – and potential World Record – for the highest jump with a full body submersion into water with a leap from 465ft.

THE ABOVE WORLD RECORD HAS NOW BEEN VALIDATED BY (GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS).

Moments after the jump

Ray said: “The jump was absolutely incredible. A little bit harder than I thought it would be – the height was unbelievable, I looked at it from the ground and thought ‘wow no-one’s going to jump off that!’”

Ray, a taxi driver for over 30 years, performed the jump to raise money for The Southend Taxi Drivers Charity for Children which takes sick and disabled children on an annual outing.

The daring pensioner secured a waterproof EE Action Cam to his chest and was able to livestream the stunt to his children and grandchildren at home in Essex.
