Stuntman Breaks Back After Attempting a Stupid Jump

This is exactly why television shows tell people not to repeat their stunts at home, this is why we can’t have nice things.

This dude was inspired by Felix Baumgartner’s jump from the edge of space, as an homage he tried jumping from a 15 foot high roof onto a ball. He of course completely missed the ball and landed straight on his ass.

The landing ended up breaking two vertebra in his back, he is very lucky to avoid paralysis. After a week in the hospital and a little back surgery he was able to upload the footage for the world to see.
