Your parachute backwards and jump off 600 foot cliff you may not be -- -- but apparently -- was not ready for this guy.
Age 38 a guy who survived his name is Sam Baker and today he's alive -- -- an amazing story about survival holds.
I had a lot of time up there to think about things and I just love life and I'm glad that all these guys to get me down safely managed very blessed to have landed or he did you find in -- very very good spot I went down -- entire legend there was not a better spot for him.
Yeah future is he should just show.
-- lottery ticket Purdue both come longer and is it an experience base jumper with the sky -- at a Tallahassee Florida Tom how are you in good morning.
Good morning sir I'm doing well how much of I'm fine thank you this guy was jump -- superstition mountain just east of Phoenix.
And he -- got -- on the side of the cliff and it was hang in there for six or seven hours.
But you have made 3800.
All over the windows -- admit.
Right I've made.
I've made 3800 total jumps most of commerce -- -- -- made 330 base jumps so hello -- a pretty good numbers are 330.
Bishops what is the real of this.
It's exhilarating there is nothing in the world like standing on the edge and knowing that it might be the last thing you ever do on the planet.
The last thing it.
It really it brings all of your focus it requires all of your skill dedication and daring.
It is it's a very good challenge now what what is the danger here.
For for you if you do not have a backup chute.
Or do you.
Now when we base jump we jump with just one parachute.
When you skydive you take you pair shoots you have a lot more time you're jumping in a wide open area you're landing over top of an open area you have just you know.
A lot more margin for air well even on a base -- only have one pair of shoes and a very limited amount of time to make it work properly.
-- impact this parachute correctly and when a parachute deploys all we need is air in time for it to inflate.
But occasionally if there's wind her body position or just a freak occurrence they can open up and -- -- -- -- away from around they can fly towards the object.
I've had that happen before have you and if you're lucky and you got some wind in your face you can grab hold of the tar balls back it up in flight away from the object and fortunately in this case it was a cliff face.
So there's no wind to keep him from flying toward -- too quickly and the line twist prevented him from turning it but I notice that this is everybody said this is a massive adrenaline rush for guys like you I mean that's that's what you get out of the guys.
Yes sir it's itself -- position it is taking human achievement and pushing your skills and your abilities right up to the point and there's sometimes -- backed off of jumps I've showed up and it either something's not writer I'm not on a 100% and then we climbed down.
Well I hope we talk again someday and -- for the right reasons.
OK it's -- everything goes through -- radio.
Thank you Tom thanks thanks revenue you bet.
