The amazing people who spend their time performing some of the most heart-stopping stunts in the world are revealed in this photo gallery. We see Toby Segar, 21, from Surrey, England, performing a backflip on the precipice of Troll Tongue in Norway. Other breathtaking shots show Nathan Paulin, 24, from France, tackling a 2,000-foot-long high wire from the Eiffel Tower to the Trocadero. Then there are the daredevil divers who decided that the sight of a great white shark wasn’t thrilling enough, so they engaged it with a hunk of bait. (Caters News)
