GMA anchor leaps off Atlantic City casino

To conquer his fear of heights, "Good Morning America" host Chris Cuomo jumped from the roof of an Atlantic City casino Tuesday morning.

As part of the ABC morning show's series about overcoming fears, he and a stunt coordinator used cables to zip nearly 40 stories down the side of the Trump Taj Mahal.

The stunt was carried live on Cuomo's show. And in Atlantic City, a crowd of onlookers cheered from the ground.

Before the trick, he told himself he was on "an elevator with no walls."

And after? Cuomo, the son of former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, says he was happy he did it.
