A 73-YEAR-OLD daredevil Brit has rolled back the years by setting a new bungee jumping record. Former cabbie Ray Woodcock set a new British - and potential world record - for the highest jump with a full body submersion into water with a leap from 465ft. The jump took place at Chepstow Quarry - the site of the highest bungee jump in the UK - with Ray plunging into the freezing cold water below, watched by partner Heather. And using the waterproof EE Action Cam, secured to his chest, Ray was able to live stream the stunt to his children and grandchildren back home.
Ray’s incredible leap is currently being reviewed by Guinness World Records. All necessary health and safety measures were taken and Ray completed a full medical assessment prior to the jump.
