WATCH: Man Parachutes Off The Shard

Friday 13th March 2012

A man has evaded security to parachute off the top of the Shard - four times!

The incredible video, shown by The Sun, shows base jumper Dan Witchalls jumping off the UK's tallest building.

The 46-year-old said he was fascinated by the skyscraper, telling The Sun: "When I heard it was being built, I thought, I must give that a go."

He revealed how he even walked straight past a sleeping security guard as he made his way to the top of the glass building.

Just last week, three "urban explorers" dodged security to reach the top of the 1,071ft building at London Bridge.
