Chris Mcdougall, world record holder and professional base jumper, jumped off Kuwait’s highest tower yesterday, sponsored by Zain and organized by Camco Events. And I was there to watch along with my camera. We arrived at 1 pm and waited for about an hour before Chris arrived at the roof of Al Hamra and got through his medical check up.
The streets surrounding the tower were packed. Every building’s roof had photographers set for this one-time chance for some great shots.
The friend’s area had a big screen broadcasting the jump.
Waiting and waiting in the heating sun.
And he jumps!
And because jumping once is for, you know, cowards.. Chris jumps another time! I’m so glad he did though. My location during the second jump got me a better view.
Aaand back to earth. After giving everyone a great thing to watch.
And the event ended with Chris posing for photos with the fans.
