A skydiver made a death-defying jump right into the record books!

Luke Aikins is the first person to leap 25,000 feet from an airplane without a parachute.

After a two-minute freefall, Aikins landed in a 100-foot by 100-foot net at the Big Sky Movie Ranch on the outskirts of Simi Valley, California.

The event aired live on television.
