Flying man in wingsuit comes close to crashing into Rio's Jesus statue

A good policy on all wingsuit jumps is to never crash into anything. A secondary policy to follow would be if you do crash into something, make sure it's soft and not Rio de Janeiro's 125-foot tall Christ the Redeemer statue. Jesus Christ may be forgiving but his statue made of 635 metric tons of reinforced concrete and soapstone is not.

Norwegian Espen Fadnes and Frenchman Ludovic Woerth were the two real life Supermen who made the wingsuit flyby from 6500 feet to zip right underneath the Christ the Redeemer statue's arms.
