And here I thought climbing Mount Everest was risky enough....
Daredevil Joby Ogwyn's bid to become the first person to jump off the summit of Mount Everest wearing nothing but a 'wingsuit' is to be filmed live.
Discovery Channel bosses, who picked up Nik Wallenda's tightrope walk across the Grand Canyon last year, will screen jumper Ogwyn's record-breaking attempt in May.
Announcing the news on Wednesday, Discovery president Eileen O'Neill said: "This is history in the making. Discovery Channel continues to bring live broadcast events unlike anything you'll see on television - from Felix Baumgartner's world record for the highest space jump to Nik Wallenda's incredible tightrope walk across the Grand Canyon."
