BALDWIN, Wis. (WCCO) — A one-armed skydiver set out Wednesday morning to accomplish something no one has ever done before.

Kevin Burkart set out to jump out of a plane more times than anyone else in history.

WCCO-TV was live in Baldwin, Wis. Wednesday morning, where Burkart planned to jump from a plane as many times as possible up until 11 a.m.

Burkart was raising money to benefit his father and all those living with Parkinson’s disease.

What’s more, he did it with just the use of one arm. Burkart was in a snowmobile accident last year, and broke numerous bones and suffered serious nerve damage to his left arm.
