Man Falls Off Cliff After Being Thrown Off A Water Slide
This video will send you through a whole range of emotions. It’s terrifying, shocking, and…a little bit funny.
It’s best to start out by letting you know that David Salmon survived. Phew. He got a broken arm and several fractured ribs for his troubles but at least he has lived to tell the tale. And, now that his wounds are healing, he laughs about it too. He posted the video to Facebook with the caption ‘Too dang old to be going down water slides’.
Although he’s laughing now, it can’t have been that funny at the time. On the other side of that slide is a cliff edge, and at the bottom of that cliff edge are some rocks. Ouch. He told Fox 4 News:
“I’d gone down a few times and it was fast. But this time, I just couldn’t slow down, even threw my arm out, and went right over the edge. For a split second, I was like oh no and then it was like a hard crash, and the rest was all just blurry.”
The water slide in question is a private one that can be found in David’s friend’s garden in Texas. It overlooks Lake Travis, which sounds lovely, but I wouldn’t advise seeking it out. Here’s the video in full.
