Watch a Man Fall 300m Down a Cliff and NOT Die

This amazing piece of footage is from Matthew Gough's helmet cam, which recorded the moment when his base-jumping parachute got twisted sending him hurtling to the ground. Shocked, dazed and confused about what just happened, Gough somehow escaped with just minor injuries.

He apparently hit the ground at some 40mph, narrowly missing some large metal spikes. It's truly amazing how resilient the human body is for him to be released just hours after being admitted to hospital with basically just cuts and bruises.

Oh, and I was wrong. This is what actioncams were made for. [SWNS via Gawker]
