Skydivers' 8,800ft jump over Peru's Nazca lines

Two skydivers have become the first people to jump 8,800ft (2,700m) over Peru's mystic Nazca lines.

Belgian Cedric Dumont and Colombian Jhonathan Florez donned wing jumpsuits for the freefall, which saw them hurtle towards the ground at speeds of up to 118mph.

The Nazca lines are giant designs best seen from an airplane that were mysteriously etched into the desert more than 1,500 years ago.

Katya Adler reports.
