Record breaking base jump?

So, the news story was about these two base jumpers leaping from the world's highest building, as a record breaking base jump.

Impressive! The story names them both, and shows the start of the two jumps...

But surely there is a third person, starting off higher than these two, and following them down - the cameraman. He/she was not named at all.

Why is the story not of three people doing this jump?

Or did I miss something really obvious here.


  1. I think they all jumped from the same height, just the camera man went last. The two that went first get the record as they jumped before the camera man.

  2. Also in base jumping surely jumping from a lower height is more of an achievement?
