High diver Orlando Duque has performed a 75-foot tuck dive from a helicopter, beside the Statue of Liberty in New York.

The Columbian extreme diver reached speeds of 80 kilometers per hour by the time he hit the water.

The jump was a publicity stunt for the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series competition, which is taking part in the US.
