RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -

Two daredevils were able to experience one of the world's most iconic statues from a unique perspective.

The men decided to use special wingsuits to fly by Brazil's Christ the Redeemer statue.

During the plunge, one man came within feet of hitting the statue, which is made of 635 tons of concrete.

Both of the men made it to the ground just fine and had some incredible video to share.
