NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 23/05/2017

Aucklander Mike Heard has smashed the Guinness world record for most bungy jumps in 24 hours, leaping off the Auckland Harbour Bridge 430 times.

He easily beat Australian Beau Retallick's mark of 158 set in 2014.

Heard began his attempt at 7pm on Tuesday and already had broken the record by midnight.

He took a sleep break before resuming at 5.30am on Wednesday.

Heard, 35, is raising funds for the Mental Health Foundation and donations from the event have reached $8700 so far.
