If you like cliff diving, the East Coast of the United States is the place to be at the moment.

The fifth stop on the 2013 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series takes place in Boston this weekend and to bring a taste of things to come to the east, former world champion Orlando Duque headed to New York.

The charismatic Colombian isn't one to shirk a challenge, so he took a helicopter out to the Hudson River and from around 25 metres in the air perfomed a dive with the backdrop of the world famous Statue of Liberty.
