Skydiver's NZ rock hole challenge


A Hungarian man has made an ambitious attempt to glide through New Zealand's iconic 'Hole in the Rock' landmark.

Laszlo Csizmadia spent four years planning the challenge and managed to fly into the hole, only to find that he did not have enough power to make it through to the other side.

Despite the disappointment, Mr Csizmadia still described the experience as "incredible" and has not ruled out making another attempt.
