CEO of Sandals Resorts International Adam Stewart made a fiery challenge to Facebook fans to encourage friends and family to “like” its page in an effort to reach its goal of 250,000 likes. After successfully achieving this milestone in less than 2 months, 33-year old Stewart has fulfilled his outrageous pledge to zipline above Jamaican rainforest through a ring of fire with the help of David Waine, the special effects expert behind Hollywood blockbusters Mission Impossible and hit franchise Fast and Furious. Stewart commented, “I’ve made many important decisions in my life but this ranks as one of the most questionable. It seemed like great fun at the time but as I was teetering on the ledge in the middle of the rainforest with the heat of the flames on my face from 100 feet away it all became very, very real. However, they say that with great risk comes great reward and I’m delighted that we smashed our target and even more delighted to walk away with only a singed arm and leg.” Enlisting the local support of Island Routes Caribbean Adventures and Caribbean tour operator Chukka, Stewart successfully conquered the feat with his wife and children watching on anxiously as the safety team immediately extinguished Stewart’s arm and leg. Australian Waine, who jetted in from Hollywood to oversee the safety aspects of the stunt, said, “Whenever I’ve been involved in something as dangerous as this for feature films, there is always a trained stuntman on hand, but for someone like Adam Stewart, the CEO of a high profile company such as Sandals Resorts, to do it is extremely unusual.”
