History Made: 164 Divers Set a New World Record at Skydive Chicago

164 hand-picked divers, pro as well as amateurs took to the skies of Chicago with only one aim in their minds, to set a new world record. And they pulled it off! The formation of 164 people flying down hand-in-hand at speeds of up to 175mph took 13 attempts to beat the 2012 mark (set by 138 skydivers) as they exited repeatedly at 19,700 feet until the record was finally broken. One of the event organizers - Mike Swanson - declared that one day it'll definitely be over 200. "There's no way we'd do it if we didn't break the 200 mark – we're way too close to it," Mark said. Well, we are only looking forward to it!
