Video: Daredevil crashes into Table Mountain
Terrifying video footage of American daredevil, Jeb Corliss, crashing into a cliff after jumping off Table Mountain, Cape Town, has appeared on YouTube.
The accident, which happened last month, left Corliss, 35, with both of his legs broken. The professional Basejumper had leapt from the famous South African landmark while wearing a wingsuit (a specialist jumpsuit with wings), while being filmed for a television documentary.
Since being airlifted to hospital from the scene of the accident on 16 January, the stuntman has reportedly remained hospitalised for the last five weeks.
Corliss, who formerly hosted a Discovery Channel programme called Stunt Junkies, was banned under a court ruling from the Empire State Building in New York in 2010 after attempting hurl himself off the 102-floor skyscraper.
The footage (above) shows Corliss hurtling towards a jutting cliff at a frightening rate, hitting it and then falling a large distance to the ground, before being tossed from rock to rock as his parachute drags him along.
