Escape artist completes skydiving box escape

Daredevil Anthony Martin has performed an amazing escape while jumping out of a plane.

The escape artist was handcuffed and chained to the inside of a coffin  and then pushed out of  a plane, 2000m up in the air.

He escaped from his shackles whilst plummeting to Earth at 130mph. The 47-year-old thrill-seeker then deployed his parachute to glide safely back to the ground.

Anthony said: “I didn’t feel any force, but what I felt was lot a of jostling.”

Anthony first performed the skydive escape in 1988

Everyone involved in the stunt landed safely – but don’t try it at home!
