Be careful out there! Can't Post

Subject says it all. The person in the video broke some bones, but IMO is pretty damn lucky!

(All three links on the page point to the same file)

Thanks anyways...I still can't get it to work. I've had this problem before with the media player and windows 2000...Oh well, I'll just take your word that it was a rough one.

I can't get my stupid Windows player to work right either. I downloaded the video and I can hear it but the damn media player only wants to show "visualizations" and not the actual picture! It sounds awful though!

Ooouuuuwwww!!! For those of you that haven't been able to view this.... go <A HREF="http://www.headdown.net/default.cgi?page=codec" target="_new">HERE!!! </A> then download the new DivX codec. Then you should be able to view it! I think it's worth your time.

I don't know what caused this accident, but my guess is, and this is purely speculation, that it was a low turn. This is a great reminder of what can actually happen when you compromise your own safety... I'm just thankful that he will live to jump again! NO LOW TURNS People!

Oh my God.

That guy is so lucky he's still alive.

I hope I never have to see that at my (or any other) DZ.
