Oct. 26 (UPI) -- A daredevil strapped about 100 helium balloons to a camping chair to take a vertigo-inducing flight over South Africa.

Tom Morgan, 38, shared a video showing his "magical flight" using a camping chair attached to about 100 large helium balloons.

Morgan said it took two days for him to fill the balloons with help from his support team.

The daredevil said he had to abort three previous attempts in Botswana before his successful South African flight.

"The problem was finding a good weather window and it was difficult to protect the balloons as they kept bursting," Morgan said.
