BASE Jumpers Leap from Singapore's Sky-High Infinity Pool

New, 18 comments

The Moshe Safdie-designed Marina Bay Sands hotel and casino in Singapore is already an eye-catching structure, one that looks like Noah's ark came to rest atop three skyscrapers as the floodwaters receded. But, not happy with the acclaim already heaped on the hotel and its sky-high infinity pool, management decided to stage a BASE jump and film the whole thing as a promotional stunt. The 57-story drop is witnessed by hotel guests bobbing in the pool, some of whom went home with a great story and others didn't even seem to notice. That the event is a rare sanctioned jump means there's plenty of jaw-dropping video evidence.
