Watch This Guy Survive a 393-Foot Fall Like Wile E. Coyote


Recommended Posts

Luckily, this guy is OK!

This video seems out of a Chuck Jones cartoon of the Roadrunner and the Coyote, but it's real. It happened in Konakova, Russia. A BASE jumper jumped off the top of an electric post, 393 feet (120 meters) over the snow surface below. Unfortunately, his parachute failed.

He probably crashed at about 106 miles per hour (170km/h) but, miraculously, survived the fall thanks to the powdered snow below.

The man broke his legs, pelvis, and some vertebrae. Fortunately, he was walking again onlythree
