Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Survives 400 ft. Impact, Like Wile E. Coyote

Andrew Revesz

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 jumps off the top of a 400-foot (120 meter) electric tower, but his parachute fails. Miraculously, he survived the fall thanks to the powdered snow below. He broke his legs, pelvis, and some vertebrae. Fortunately, he was walking again only three months later, proving once again that Russians are made of iron.
