Earlier this week we showed you Jeb Corliss’s brush with death, as he hit the side of Table Mountain while attempting a wingsuit jump. Now, the footage from the cameras mounted to his helmet is available — and it looks terrifying.
When Jeb jumped off of Table Mountain, he sure as hell wasn’t planning to hit one of its outcrops at full speed. Sadly, on the way down his foot clipped a rock whilst he was travelling at 190km/h.
As the video shows, despite the collision, he still managed to open his parachute. That alone is how he survived. You are a lucky, lucky man, Jeb. [Jeb Corliss]
