BASE Jump Goes Horribly Wrong

BASE jumping is one of those activities that everyone knows is inherently dangerous, yet at the same time it also looks amazingly tranquil. That is until something goes wrong, like in the video here. In this case, the BASE jumper strikes a rock outcropping on the way down, causing multiple injuries including stitches to the eye and chin, a sprained back, wrist and hand, and a compression fracture to the T12 vertebrae. Amazingly he survived. We wish him a speedy recovery. —Kraig Becker
