“We found out that the people were the cameramen. When we got to the top, we were stopped by what must have been a member of the production team and said, “You can’t go. We’re going to land the helicopter from the top…” So we took a selfie,” he said.

After the helicopters landed, the couple continued on their way where they encountered Tom strapped to a paraglider.

“I saw right away it was him,” Sarah said. “By the time we got there, people were talking about Mission: Impossible being filmed…but I was expecting a stunt double.”
