Model basejump: Extreme adrenaline junkie stages wingsuit flight over active volcano (VIDEO)

Model basejump: Extreme adrenaline junkie stages wingsuit flight over active volcano (VIDEO)
Veteran base jumper and model Roberta Mancino has attempted her most daring wingsuit flight yet – over an active magma-bubbling volcano.

Mancino trained for years before embarking on the risky mission that saw her leap out of a helicopter at 15,000ft and zip through sulfur-infused smoke billowing from one of Chile’s most active volcanoes, Villarrica. 

Mancino is no stranger to daring jumps – the model was already known for basejumping naked or topless in the past and previously flew through Panama City buildings in a wingsuit as one of her more than 7,000 skydives.

The jawdropping volcano footage was captured using a GoPro, something that is becoming increasingly common among extreme sports enthusiasts who seem to compete in an endless battle of the brave.
