EIKESDAL CLIFF, Norway — Here's what you don't want to happen when performing acrobatics near the edge of a cliff.

Richard Henriksen was said to be only "centimeters from death" as he attempted this stunt.

The stand broke, flinging him over the edge of the cliff — almost 4,000 feet above the ground.

One person who witnessed the accident said everyone was certain he had died.

But Henriksen managed to open his parachute just seconds before smashing into the ground.
