First and foremost, this has nothing to do with James Bond 007, except the thrill of jumping-off the top from Kuwait Tallest Skyscraper - Al Hamra Tower. It stands tall at 412.6 meters and is the tallest sculpted (stone clad structure / fully concreted) tower in the world. Yes, Kuwait holds this record. Now, to find someone daring enough to leap off this structure and be the first one in Kuwait to pull off base jumping from any skyscraper in Kuwait is organised and masterminded by Camco Global Events (Their Insatgram Page). As the statement by the event organiser go "Chris McDougall World Champion & Record Holder B.A.S.E Jumper is leaping off Al Hamra Tower". This person is famous for his base jumping and wingsuit flying.
