'Insane' footage of man breaking death dive world record leaves people mind-blown

While most of us were probably tucked up at home watching Christmas movies over the weekend, this guy decided to go out and break a world record.

Ken Stornes has been labeled as 'insane' by his 496,000 Instagram followers in light of his gut-wrenching videos shared online.

To doing squats at the top of a mountain, to going for a dip in freezing cold waters - it appears as if there's little that Ken won't do.

One thing that's got him a huge fan-base online is his incredible (yet petrifying) videos of him doing death dives, which mainly appear to be done in his home country of Norway.

His latest video was shared to Instagram yesterday (December 3) and it's safe to say it's the infantry combat veteran's scariest yet.

In the clip, Ken is stood on some kind of mechanical ledge before he throws off a large stone to demonstrate just how far the fall was.

It isn't long until he follows, and plummets himself into the icy waters below.

There's then a team of people water for him in the waters to make sure Ken is okay.

In his efforts, Ken officially broke the world record for the highest deep dive at 40.5 meters (132ft).

A fellow Norwegian holds the titled for the highest women's death dive - Asbjørg Nesje set the record at 30.5 meters.

"Once again we take the deathdive world record back to Norway where it belongs," he penned next to the video.

Ken added: "This was insane!"

And his thousands of followers echoed similar sentiments.

"How do u not die doing this? Its like hitting concrete," questioned one person.

Another person joked: "Genuinely thought you’d die doing this, his massive nuts must have softened the impact."

Someone else gushed: "You didn’t just do a world record, you did way more than that!

"I've never ever thought that this would be possible in human history! Sir it’s a honor for me to watch your ousting extreme sport."

The general consensus in the rest of the comments were people asking 'what the actual f**k?' - and I tend to agree with their feelings.

And it goes without saying, from the amount of people tagged and listed in the comments section of his video, there was a huge team behind his dive.

With this in mind, you definitely shouldn't be doing this without proper training and support.

As the saying goes: don't try this at home, kids.
