Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Survives Cliff Strike

Submitted by Andrew | Posted: 10 months ago
A cliff strike while BASE jumping can really mess up your day, especially when it ends with a broken pelvis followed by 9 months of recovery. While “always wear protective gear” is never a bad idea, I think the take-away from this incident is to practice tracking off a more forgiving exit point and always remember to steer your canopy above the line twists. Heal fast mate.
