An American base jumper films his own daredevil plunged from a south African -- when this stunt goes horribly wrong.
Trace Gallagher has more Trace.
And based -- Jeb Corliss is a very well known daredevil -- and he's done some great stuff like this this isn't table mountain South Africa he's jumping out and you can see he's got nothing but a winged it.
Suit on right he just got on his rubber wings he flies -- this they heads off the rocks.
And he's heading down toward the ocean going a 120 miles per hour now he gets going -- about several cameras because -- being filmed by TV documentary someone whose body.
He's got others up in the air and there is of course aerials flying above him.
But he gets so close to the rocks at one point in time that he hits the rocks with his -- you'll see that he hits the rocks -- his legs it catapults him some 200 feet you see that there but it's kind of hard so come back on camera if you would demand Milwaukee over here.
And this is what it look like on the still photography you see his body right here and see how close he is to the rocks.
This is right before he actually hits those rocks and bounces off.
Now I'm gonna show to you in several different angles hitting the rocks and flying off.
Again -- 120 miles per hour.
-- -- now hit some goes up he catapults 200 feet mega -- he's kind of scrambling to get his parachute on gun.
So that he can actually land this thing.
He broke both of his legs he's been in the hospital now for five weeks is expected to fully recover but here's the thing.
If he had hit just a little bit lower on his body instead of his legs may be hitting up on his chest or even his head.
The experts say it's very unlikely that he would have survive Jeb Corliss.
On table mountain the documentary goes on by the way and he says when he gets out of the hospital and he recovers he will do this.
Again -- my cat that is unbelievable.
Glad to hear he lived -- thank you doubt got.
