A US man confesses to crying after performing a “flying dagger” stunt, barely crossing through a crack between two peaks in the Jianglang mountains in China.

This weekend, Jeb Corliss donned a wing suit and performed a stunt he had spent months planning for.

He crosses an area just 60 feet (18 meters) wide at the top, and 15 feet (4.6 meters) at the bottom, located in Zhejiang Province.

It was windy and the mountains were covered in clouds. His team thought that the stunt would be canceled, but he managed to go through with it when the clouds cleared.

Thousands of Chinese residents watched as he made it through the mountains on Saturday, at 4 p.m.

"[It is] the single gnarliest thing I've ever done in my life," he tells NBC News.
