This base jumper's parachute saved his life, but not in the way you think. His chute got stuck on a rock moments after the man slammed into a cliff wall, preventing him from careening to the ground at high speeds from 100 feet above...
quote:

It all happened over Thanksgiving weekend at the Kane Creek Canyon in Moab, Utah ... about 4 hours southeast of Salt Lake City.

Hikers at the location recorded a base jumper leaping off a 400-foot cliff known as the Tombstone ... when out of nowhere, a gust of wind seized the parachute, forcing him right into a rock wall at a high rate of speed, seemingly knocking him unconscious.

Seems like a poster boy for, 'Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.' Except luckily for him he only got like second runner-up, not the top Darwin Award.

They need to put a net around that cliff so people can't jump off it and get died. About a tree fiddy million should do's it.
