If one of us said we were going to jump out of an airplane at 25,000 feet without a parachute, we would probably be held for evaluation under an attempted suicide ruling. However, this guy goes ahead and announces it to the Media, does it and is some kind of folk hero. Things get very sketchy with the law here. I was told it was a matter on intent that prevented the law from interferring. 
Walt,

That's true.  The guy pulling this stunt did not intend to kill himself.  He intended to be successful.  And, fortunately for him, he was.
