Cannonball man flies over border
David Smith has an unusual way of crossing the Mexican border into the US - as a human cannonball.
Mr Smith, a professional cannonball, was launched head first across the border between Tijuana, in Mexico, and the US city of San Diego.
His son, also a human cannonball, says Mr Smith is the first person to be fired across an international border.
Mr Smith waved his passport in the air as he sat on the lip of the cannon, before leaving on the brief journey.
