GoPro Traces The Deadly Crash & Recovery Of Base Jumper Jeb Corliss

Most base jumpers are aware of the dangers of the sport well before they take it on as a full time hobby. Every now and then though, fear tends to escape the mind after countless successful runs.

This was the case for American base jumper Jeb Corliss who took his efforts to South Africa in 2012 and paid a huge price when he soared too close to the rocks and skimmed his lower body. Corliss broke both his ankles, three toes, a fibular and tore his left Anterior ligament. He also sustained a serious skin wound which required multiple skin grafts to close.

Miraculously, Corliss survived that deadly accident and is today base jumping again with a newfound respect for the sport. GoPro documented Corliss’ accident from day one and has retold his long journey to recovery whilst sharing a few life lessons along the way. Definitely one of the lucky few.
