Skier Records 1,600 Ft. Fall Off Mountain, Lives

With the help of GoPro and an upheaval of 21st century testosterone, impressive videos from the extreme sports world are becoming the norm. However, when one involves a man falling nearly five football fields and SURVIVING?? That’s a video worth watching.

The new viral video below is of Ian McIntosh, reportedly an experienced skier, who lost control during his descend of Alaska’s Neacola mountain range.

The extent of his injuries are unknown right now. But following his incredible fall, you can hear him say, “I’m okay … I’m okay.”

According to The Daily Mail, McIntosh said he “lost his control due to an unseen five foot deep trench during one of his first turns.”

He also reportedly said, “From there, my slough took over and there was no way to stop,’ he explained. ‘I pulled my airbag to help prevent against any possible trauma injuries as I tumbled to the bottom.”
