Daredevil Flies Over An Active Volcano In A Wingsuit

The veteran daredevil leapt out of a helicopter at 15,000 feet, flying through sulfur-infused smoke billowing from one of Chile’s most active volcanoes.

Italian model and base-jumper Roberta Mancino, who has performed over 7,000 jumps, attempted what was perhaps her most challenging stunt.

In a video shot by GoPro, Mancino leaps out of a helicopter at 15,000 feet, gliding through the sulfur-laced smoke rising from Chile's Villarrica volcano.

“Flying a wingsuit over an active volcano has long been a dream for Roberta Mancino,” GoPro states on YouTube. “After years of training, she embarked on a mission to Chile's Villarrica stratovolcano to fly through the sulfur-infused smoke that pours from its crater.”

As astonishingly impressive as the death-defying feat may be, it’s strongly advised not to try this stunt on your own — or even with someone, for that matter.
