He escaped from his shackles whilst plummeting to Earth at 130mph. The 47-year-old thrill-seeker then deployed his parachute to glide safely back to the ground.

Anthony said: "I didn't feel any force, but what I felt was lot a of jostling."

Everyone involved in the stunt landed safely - but don't try it at home!
