The America stunt rider leapt 75ft from barge to barge with only a 150ft run-up and 36ft to stop in before plunging into the Thames. 

American freestyle motocross rider Mike Metzger suffered a fractured a vertebra attempting a similar barge-to-barge jump in Long Beach harbour, Los Angeles, in 2006. 

Pastrana's stunt marked the announcement of a 2018 tour by extreme sports show Nitro Circus
