The young, brave and foolish jumper was filmed by his best friend in Konakova, Russia. It can be seen in the video how the young jumper is nervous in anticipation as he prepares to jump off the 120 meter power pylon. As the hapless daredevil shuffles tentatively towards the edge of the platform, the anxiety on his face is clear each second, even in this grainy handheld footage, filmed by a friend. On his bad luck his fears did actually come true as he finally plucks up the courage to make the leap into the snowy below. Seconds into his fall it becomes clear that the man’s parachute has failed to open and he plummets towards the earth in Konakova, Russia. He hits the ground with a muffled thud and a puff of snow as his friend can only look down from above. The friend can only look on helplessly as he holds the camera over the precipice to see any signs of life on the floor below. Miraculously, the man survived the fall after the powdery snow cushions his fall. He was even able to walk again after three months after fracturing his vertebrae, pelvis and legs.
We are absolutely sure this is his last Base Jumping adventure. Would you dare to try it after seeing this?
