Damn lucky it didn't just collapse.

Too bad it didn't...would have been one less idiot in the world...
My apologies to this idiot's family...but your family member is an idiot.

Jesus, he hit the ONE farking part sticking out on the whole damned cliff. That sucks.

I'm wondering where this is, too... Looks like southern Utah, down by maybe the Green River. Last summer(2012), we were camping at this awesome little place down in the general area of Moab and met a bunch of BASE jumpers who actually jumped into the campground on the last night we were there(It was a big common area, everybody was cleared out and watching, so it's not like they were jumping into people's campfires and tents), and it was really cool. I got some good pics of these guys, I hope it wasn't any of them.

Damn, one lucky dude.

From the way it looked like he shattered that piece of cliff jutting out, I just hope if he wanted children he already has them.

That video need a lot less Awolnation and a lot more Homer Simpson "D'oh!"s.

I'm hoping he doesn't have any and never will.

It's Wile. E Coyote.  The E stands for Ethelbert.

I think they could have picked some much better music to cover the sounds of his screams.
 
2013-12-06 01:43:36 PM
Meh...not as good as the Jeb Corliss (?) one where after he hit the rocks he landed in a bunch of sticker bushes, adding insult to injury.
 
2013-12-06 02:05:09 PM
I was surprised at the bystanders being really casual about him falling...Did not appear to be in any rush to aid him.

I see I'm evidently not the only one who, as he closed with the cliff, thought "Well, whatever you do, don't hit that."

/"Ok, well at least don't rack yourself on it."

at 00:50 you can see a drop of blood in the bottom right corner, poor bastard did it to himself

Yeah, i saw the damn thing coming and thought "There's no way he's going to drift over just in time to nail that". The good news is that he seems to have annihilated the rock to some extent with his balls, so maybe the next guy won't hit it. THAT, my friend, is known as "Taking one for the team".

Full-speed version at about 3:05.  From collision to ground-impact in a shade under 10 seconds.  True, it's enough time to already be on the move, but not so long that I would really blame someone for still being in holy-fark-stunned mode.

And at 00:51 he probably crapped his pants.

Yeah, when I watched the guys I watched last year, it was decently slow when they got a chance to come out from the cliff, spill a little air, do a few turns, but this was FAST.

If I didn't already have enough reasons to never base jump (and I do already have enough reasons to never base jump), that video would probably do it.
 
2013-12-06 03:31:44 PM
All your base jumps are belong to us.....
 
2013-12-06 03:33:27 PM
Dude, you can never win against physics. You can only get at best a draw.
 
2013-12-06 03:35:56 PM
Yep, it was Moab...

here's a story with a name(And the video of course).
http://dailypicksandflicks.com/2013/12/05/base-jumper-slams-into-cli ff -video/

Judging by his FB page, he spent 24 hours in the hospital, which wasn't bad, considering the damage he listed.

Yup. That's target fixation. I've done it on a motorcycle and it will ruin your day.

Flawless victory! (Unlike the stupid base jumper.)

It's called base "jumping" for a reason.

/I thought you're supposed to run and then jump off.
//not just stand there and fall off.
/// I could be wrong. I don't do stupid things like that.
 
2013-12-06 07:07:43 PM
If you jump off a cliff. You're an idiot and deserve it.

That and all the falling rock would be enough  to make me wait till it was safe. I can call 911 from over here if you don't mind.
 
2013-12-06 09:36:53 PM
I looked at the injury list.  Suspiciously missing, loss of one or more testicles.
 
2013-12-06 11:58:42 PM
Broken into segments that video is all my arguments against base jumping in visual form.  And you know  mother nature is not amused by your shenanigans when she sets up a cliff with a skinning knife.


But the backwards mounted gopro had a beautiful view of the canyon.
 
2013-12-07 03:07:45 AM
serious question: where did he expect to land? that tiny stretch of road? From here it looks like its ending up in the river or slamming into the wall.
 
2013-12-07 05:35:03 AM
I feel nothing for people who get farked up during base jumping, bungee, air plane and what not more. They should all die doing it.
 
2013-12-07 05:49:01 AM
Darwin swings...

...it's a miss!

2013-12-07 12:43:34 PM
He did a halfway decent parachute landing fall when he reached the ground.

His brain was further protected by a skull several inches thick.
 
2013-12-07 02:04:13 PM
Been better off just jumping off the damn cliff without a chute.
 
2013-12-07 04:49:07 PM
Its a good thing that cliff was crappy sandstone and the rock blade just broke away.

Yosemite granite would have cleaved him in two.
