Jeb Corliss' wing-suit accident

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

Wing-suit expert Jeb Corliss aka "The Birdman", whose breathtaking demo video we've seen earlier, has suffered a serious crash resulting in his both legs being broken, after jumping off Table Mountain, in South Africa, yesterday. The incident was captured on camera.

From The Telegraph:
A spokesman for Table Mountain, Merle Collins, said Mr Corliss was "lucky to be alive" after he fell more than 200 feet from the 3,500 foot mountain before landing on a sloped side known as Africa Face.

"He managed to release his emergency chute and we believe he would have died without it," she said.

He was recovered from close to the base of the mountain by air ambulance and taken to a private hospital in the city where he was admitted to intensive care.
