This BASE Jumper Miraculously Survived His Parachute Failing


BASE Jump Chute Failure, Miracle Save! from Rock & Ice on Vimeo.

Lucky Chance, professional badass, seems surprised himself to be alive. After flying off this cliff on the epically-named Death Swing, he did a triple backflip, counting on his chute to deploy. Only it didn't, leaving him to fall 590 feet to certain death.
But, miraculously, the parachute opened in the nick of time. Literally right before he hit the ground. Chance called the experience a true adventure. Fuck, man. Awesome as this was, I'd never want to have an adventure like that. [Vimeo]
