138 Skydivers Set New World Record

CHICAGO (CBS) Friday night in the sky’s just outside of Chicago, a new world record was set with 138 skydiver flying heads-down all together.

The world–setting skydivers joined hands to create a human snowflake in mid-air at speeds up to 220-miles-per-hour.

The previous mark was 108 skydivers, which was set three years ago in Chicago in 2009.

It took 15 tries to finally break the record.

What was even more impressive, four of the skydivers shot the video of the event.
