Last night's insane crash in Taipei got me wondering what it'd be like to experience such an event. So I talked to legendary adventurer Robert Young Pelton, who survived a very similar experience. Here's his story and advice on living through it.
Ouch. That has got to hurt. Ice climber Mark R. was climbing up a mountain when he was sent plummeting down by a piece of falling ice that hit him. He then basically avalanches down the mountain side and hits every rock down the way. It's like a scene from Game of Thrones but completely real. And even more insane…
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.
