On November 24th, BASE jumper Thayer Healy visited Moab, Utah to jump off a cliff in an area known as ‘Wall Street’. Just seconds into the jump things go horribly wrong and Healy slams into the side of the cliff. Incredibly, Healy survived the fall and spent one day in the hospital. Injuries he sustained included ‘compression fracture of the T12 vertebra, 5 stitches to the eye, 6 stitches to the chin, severely sprained back, wrist and hand, and multiple bruises’. The entire fall was captured on a GoPro camera mounted to Healy’s helmet and the footage has been seen more than one million times this week.
Earlier this year we introduced to you ‘Trick Shot Titus‘, a 2-year-old who rarely misses a shot. Titus returned this week with a brand new trick shot video which features even more incredible trick shots and actors Channing Tatum and Bradley Cooper.
