The fact that this video is in slow-mo makes it so much worse. Watch how an extreme cliff jumper has his worst nightmare become a reality. We’re not quite sure what went wrong, whether it was a parachute failure, or simply the fact that he was too close too the cliff. The insane headcam footage shows the base jumper hit the cliff several times on his way down including one incredible moment when he literally shatters a rock jutting out from the cliff. The jumper survived, with a few injuries of course.

On his Vimeo channel (where the video was originally posted), user Subterminallyill lists the injuries as “Compression Fracture of the T12 Vertebra, 5 stitches to the eye, 6 stitches to the chin, severely sprained Back, wrist and hand and  multiple bruised areas.
