RAY: My name’s Ray Woodcock, I’m 73-years-old. I hold the world record for bungee jumping
into water. Today I’m going to smash my world record to a massive 465 feet. 00:25
JOHN: We’re doing the highest jump today, ever jumped in the UK. I have to admit there’s
trepidation because of his age and how he’s going to be affected by the jump. 00:34
Cage is ready for Ray. Cage is ready for Ray. 00:38
RAY: Today is very special. Ready to go. My family back in Essex will be able to actually
see my live with the EE Action Camera. And they’ll be able to watch every bit of it. 00:50
He look nervous. 01:01
Ray has reached jump height, repeat Ray has reached jump height. 01:04
Wow. 01:12
3…2..1. 01:16
Good luck granddad! 01:18
Jump. Jump. Jump. 01:35
Woah that is fast. 01:41
Woah, look at that! 02:08
RAY: Didn’t expect the spinning. 02:12
JOHN: You okay, you all right? 02:15
Ray is okay repeat, Ray is okay. 02:20
Yes granddad! 02:24
RAY: Doing that jump today was absolutely fantastic. 02:28
To see my dad do that, I’m extremely happy that he’s safe, he’s done it. 02:33
I think my stomach went with him. It actually went with him. The action cam is fantastic.
And you can see everything in pure detail. All the way down. Absolutely amazing. 02:44
RAY: I’ve lived every day for today. I’m 73 years old, and I like to think that age is
just a number. 02:54
RAY: John! 600 next week!
