I don't know what it is, pretty wild though.

 

 

Here is a vid that doesn't go so well.  Hitting rocks at 120mph+ is not good for the human body

From Wikipedia, it seems ot talks about this latest video.

 

On 16 January 2012, in an accident while proximity flying off Table MountainCape TownSouth Africa, Jeb broke both ankles, three toes, and a fibula, tore his left ACL, and sustained a gash in his skin that required skin grafts to close. He struck his legs approximately halfway between the hip and knee on a rock ledge he was attempting to skim over while aiming at a target balloon. The impact caused him to tumble forward one revolution before he regained control in order to clear some additional ledges. He then deployed his parachute. He was airlifted out by theRed Cross Air Mercy Service Agusta 119. He has recovered, is up and walking, and plans to return to life as usual. A video of the accident has been released.[10][11]

I don't remember if it was Science/Nat Geo/Discovery, but one of them had a special on how base jumpers are addicted to the adrenaline rush.  Apparently they don't feel alive unless they are risking life & limb.  They watch their friends die doing this stuff, and it has no impact on them.  Maybe they need to try PL'ing or grip sport before base jumping.  :chris:
