Edit: Red Bull Has pulled the videos from YouTube, claiming they’re doing quality control. Look to their homepage to find their videos later on. For now, the Live Leak video (above) will have to do. Felix loses control around :30 seconds.

Despite overwhelming odds and bad weather, Felix Baumgartner and Red Bull successfully jumped 120,000 feet from a stratospheric balloon. According to Felix, there was a slight hiccup. During his fall from 22 miles, there was a moment where he lost control and tumbled for a good while. While Felix was able to pull out of his spin, I think most of us would have been put in the record books for being the first person to sh*t themselves while traveling at the speed of sound.

Knowing Red Bull’s penchant for taking breath-taking footage of all their stunts, we’re sure that there’s going to be some real visual gold coming our way.

In the meantime, we’re more than happy to bring you the footage from Felix’s chest cam.
