A base jumper who almost died after crashing into a cliff during a botched leap from Table Mountain in South Africa today posted incredible footage of the accident on his website.
American daredevil Jeb Corliss, 35, broke both of his legs and was airlifted to hospital following the horrific 120mph smash last month in Cape Town.
The world famous stunt artist was being filmed for a television documentary when he careered into a rock face after leaping from the famous landmark wearing only a winged flying suit.
The stunt man, who has spent more than five weeks in hospital since the January 16 accident, today posted a chilling video of the smash on the internet.
The incredible video lasts almost three minutes and is entitled Table Mountain Crash All Angles.
It starts with a black screen containing a warning message 'May be disturbing for some viewers', before showing Corliss fearlessly starting his stunt.
The video, which can be seen on YouTube, shows the daredevil leaping from the flat surface of the mountain and soaring towards the sea.
But seconds later the accident can be clearly seen as his legs smash into a rock face, sending him spiralling towards the ground.
The horrifying moment of impact is repeated several times from multiple angles during the video, which is played out over upbeat rock music.
Michelle Norris, spokeswoman for the Christiaan Barnaard Hospital in Cape Town, today said he remained there under observation and was due to be discharged on Friday.
She said: 'Mr Corliss needed extensive surgery on his legs and also needed skin grafts to repair the damage. He suffered serious and injuries and remains in the hospital, although he has been making good progress in recovery.
'One of the reasons he is still with us is that we needed to check how the wounds would heal from the skin grafts, but we hope to be able to discharge him on Friday. After that he plans to return home immediately to America to be with his family.'
Corliss' video record of the incident concludes by offering thanks to those who helped rescue him following the smash.
A dog rescued by a firefighter from a freezing pond was impounded Wednesday after biting a veteran Denver television anchor in the face during a live morning broadcast.
The anchor, Kyle Dyer, was doing a follow-up interview on the dramatic rescue of 85-pound Argentine mastiff Gladiator Maximus, also known as Max, after he fell into a Lakewood lake Tuesday while chasing a coyote. Firefighter Tyler Sugaski, who put on a wetsuit and rescued the dog, was also being interviewed when the attack occurred.
According to KUSA-TV, firefighters, paramedics and animal control were called to the station after the attack.
The station later showed video of Dyer petting the dog, but stopped before the attack occurred and said they would not rebroadcast it. Other video showed the dog lunging at Dyer and viciously biting her face.
Meghan Hughes, spokeswoman for the Denver Environmental Health department, said 39-year-old Michael Robinson of Lakewood was cited with failure to have his dog on a leash, allowing a dog to bite and failure to have a vaccinated dog.
Hughes said the dog is being quarantined until a judge can hold a hearing on the charges and rule on the dog's fate.
Robinson did not return a phone call seeking comment.
Julie Lonborg, spokeswoman for Denver Health hospital, said in a statement that Dyer was in fair condition and being evaluated by a trauma team. The hospital said she was awake and visiting with family.
According to the station (http://on9news.tv/yGZ4GQ), Robinson was taking the dog for a walk without a leash on Tuesday around 5:30 p.m. when the dog spotted a coyote running out of a bush.
The dog chased the coyote onto the ice and fell into the freezing water, where the animal spent 20 minutes before firefighters with the West Metro Fire Department arrived.
Sugaski broke the ice with his arms to get closer to the dog.
"The dog recognized right off that I was there to help, so he came towards me," Sugaski said.
No phone listing was available for Robinson and the West Metro Fire Department said Sugaski was unavailable for comment.
Max suffered a few scrapes from the ice, but was recovering from his ordeal. Firefighters were never able to locate the coyote.
I'm sure Lion fans will love this video. It appears that T-Wolve Forward Kevin Love steps on the face of Houston's Luis Scola? Is this worse that than Suh stomp? Leave your thoughts in the comment section.
The video shows the dog’s owner entering the elevator and pressing a button. The dog, however, doesn’t follow, and instead stands motionless outside. The owner, however, also stands motionless, appearing to stare at the dog. Then, the doors close, and still the owner stands motionless. However, he soon realizes what is happening and frantically tries to open the door, but to no avail. The video then shows the owner being yanked to the ground by the force of the caught leash and banging his head. A separate surveillance video shows what happened to the dog: he got yanked to the ceiling and then fell to the ground.
