Skydivers in Colombia reenacted a game of Quidditch from more than 10,000 feet in the air. Brooms in hand, the daredevils leapt out of a plane equipped with quaffles and a goal post for their mid-air match. All that was missing was a golden snitch.

The magical game is a promotional stunt by ETB, a Colombian phone company. The six lucky skydiving fans are all the company’s employees. It’s no doubt this crew of daredevil athletes are the envy of all Muggle Quidditch teams everywhere.
