BASE Jumping and Hitting the Cliff

While jumping in Moab, Utah, BASE jumper Thayer Healey slammed into the side of the cliff after pulling his parachute. He said equipment failure caused him to lose control and ended up with a “compression fracture of the T12 vertebra, 5 stitches to the eye, 6 stitches to the chin, severely sprained back, wrist and hand. Multiple bruised areas.” Surprisingly, he only spent a day in the hospital before being released. It was all caught on his GoPro.
