NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Oct. 19 (UPI) -- A masked daredevil in California donned a pair of GoPro cameras and filmed his death-defying jump from the top of an eight-story building into a harbor.

The video, posted to YouTube by the daredevil known only as 8Booth, shows the man with a handkerchief blocking his face climbing to the top of the apartment building in Newport Beach with a pair of GoPro cameras strapped to his head and hand.

The man stands on the ledge of the roof for a moment before jumping the estimated 129 feet down to Newport Harbor.

The daredevil appears for a moment as if he is going to land on a dock, but he narrowly misses the structure and lands safely in the water.

"Don't try this at home, I'm a professional," 8Booth wrote in the video's description.
