Default Holy Crap; Did You Guys See This Yesterday?

Wicked fall in the big air competition at the X Games. Dude eventually walked off the ramp on his own will, but was sent directly to the hospital for evaluation. One of the craziest falls I've ever seen; can only imagine what he was thinking the instant it bacame obvious that it was gonna be bad.

Notice how his shoes basically fly off his feet. Holy ****!

Yeah that was wild. I can't believe he actually got up let alone walk away. I thought he was dead.

That was a nasty looking fall. His ankles could have been shattered had he landed on them slightly more.

I saw that last night... SICK. I thought he was knocked out after a fall like that, good to see him get up and walk off the ramp? Whatd you guys thinkin about the guy doing the 360 in motocross? Sweet trick but not best trick material..

At least he thought to turn his body... and landing on a slide beats landing on flat surface any day

I saw this when I came into work this morning. Insane!!

You can't really fall in a worse spot. I'm glad he made it up to his feet. It was crazy how his shoes flew off like they did too. Craziness.

Shouldn't these X Games have cusions on the side in case this happens again.

Dude was in the air for a while, some peoples could have bought a cusion out for him to land on.

He was in the air for like 3 seconds. That's not enough time for the crew to realize the situation, get a giant cushion ready, and carry it to the vert, let alone manage to bring it on time to the exact spot in which he falls.

These are humans, not machines.

they should have a cushion that shoots out instantly and some dude sits there on the side with a button that controls it...

but seriously that was a crazy fall. I was watching it as it happened and i thought the guy was dead. Seems like a pretty crazy thing to do for a living.

i was on the board watching this on TV at the same time.. at first i thought he was just celebrating coming off the half pipe and was gonna slide back down on his knees like they always do, and then i realized that he was at least 25 feet away from the lip. then he straight smashed.
