Daredevil jumps off London Eye wearing a straitjacket.

Summary: Daredevil Jonathan Goodwin jumps off the London Eye in a straitjacket.

The daredevil escapologist Jonathan Goodwin has performed his latest death defying stunt in central London.

He jumped off the London eye, trapped in straitjacket, with only minutes to escape before a burning rope sent him plummiting into the Thames river.

Crowds watched anxiously as Mr Goodwin struggled to break free, and with only seconds to spare, it appeared the flames had spread to his jacket.

But in the nick of time the escapologist threw his jacket to the ground and climbed to safety.

The stunt was filmed for his new TV show, The Incredible Mr Goodwin, which starts on 7th March on Watch.
