O_O

ive heard of some extraordinary thing but thats just insane. seriously, thats an excellent pro-god argument right there. logically, scientifically, biologically that should NEVER be possible. even landing on a springy roof, on top of your partner with a matress beneath you, you STILL wouldnt normally survive that. logically and scientifically of course.

btw, i wouldnt normally make 2 threads in 1 hour but i had to say something about this.

Except there have been people who have survived falling from 10,000+ feet up as a result of failed parachutes. It's all in how you fall and how you land.

Physics. Use it to your advantage.

Very lucky for the guy, but, I wouldn't go as far as an act of God. His brother died from falling, so it's like saying God wanted the main guy to live, but not his brother, but still severely injure the main guy. If it weren't for the surgeons, he'd have probably died.

I do believe in miracles, but I think this guy got lucky and fell at a better position than his unfortunate brother.

well, i dont believe in god at all. but its hard to explain that away with just luck. like i was gonna say too zeo, he didnt hit vegetation, his parachute didnt tangle and give him slight lift. he just hit pure hard surface.

There have also been people who've been whisked away by tornados, hurled way way up only to cartwheel themselves to safety. Again, its all in how you fall and you how land.

Zeo's right. If you can find a way to slow your rate of speed, and protect your vital organs upon impact, you can survive a fairly horrifying fall. A cat doesn't always land on its feet for nothing. Well, they land on their feet if given the time to flip around in the air...

Even I have to admit that while I'd like to think God gave him a helping hand, I've heard of people surviving much more improbable odds. I'm sure God was with him, but physics must have had a say as well. I'd call it more miraculous if he dusted himself off and called in a Hearst for his brother. This guy was one lucky SOB, but he still got thrashed.

That guy isn't lucky at all. He got ****ed up. I don't believe in God though. I believe in someone being so manly that the earth itself rejects them upon impact.

Poor guy? He lived. I'd rather go through 9 surgeries and live then to fall to my death. He lived, that's the greatest gift of all. Not to mention he spoke to his wife christmas day. I bet his wife got the best present on the face of the Earth.
