BASE Jumper Survives Crash

A Norwegian BASE jumper survived a crash when he leaped from a mile-high mountain and his chute failed to open.

With a camera attached to his helmet, Hans Lange struggled to straighten out his parachute before hitting a rock wall and crashing into a tree. Lange survived, but with a broken leg.

“There is no room for mistakes in this sport,” Lange said.

  1. That must have hurt. I’m glad he survived. He must be really brave to keep jumping after he crashed like that. He should wear roller skates, so if that happens again, he can glide with his wing suit and land with his skates.
