That’s where the I’m frightened for him, comes in. The GoPro footage makes it look like he’s coming excruciatingly close to the cement after hucking himself off multiples of stories, only to hustle away after like he’s avoiding capture. Which is exactly what he’s doing. He was especially close to the edge on his first leap, below.
