Horrifying Botched Cliff Jump Captured on GoPro Camera (Video)
First things first: The person who took this video is still alive, albeit suffering “a compression fracture of the T12 Vertebra, five stitches to the eye, six stitches to the chin, a severely sprained back, wrist and hand, plus multiple bruised areas, ” so you don’t have to worry about watching a snuff film at work.
But this video taken by a cliff jumper who lost control and went into free fall while wearing a GoPro camera on his head is still extremely harrowing. It starts with the cliff jumper, uh, jumping off a cliff. And it’s hard, as a non-cliff-jumping-expert, to tell exactly when everything went wrong, but eventually he’s bouncing off the rocky cliff like a rag doll before crashing to the ground.
If you can handle it, the video can be seen below. This is more frightening than any scene in Gravity.
