Since I can't see Youtube stuff at work Im going to guess and say it's a video of the guy falling after that ridiculous skateboard jump; in which case, yes, I saw that and it was nuts! EDIT: I just realized that the video is titled "YouTube - X Games extreme skateboard fall by Jay Brown," so I guess I was right.
They basically had to force the guy to go the hospital and he walked about a day or two later with a bruised lung and a broken wrist. Considering that fall the guy is luck he's not paralyzed or dead!
This might sound dumb, but i think there is a ton of skill involved just when it comes to landing after some really bad like that happens. He looked like he twisted his body in the air so that he wouldn't land face-first or with his feet pointed straight down, which would have probably snapped his ankles. At the same time, if he had landed on the really flat part in the middle of the half pipe I don't think he would have been so lucky.
In the end, I'm just glad he didn't die so that I don't feel like a psycho watching him fall 100 times in a row.

That was about the biggest fall I have seen on a ramp, not the worst fall but the biggest. Most of the time they can catch the incline of the ramp so they can slide down the ramp but he just landed on the flate section. He is luck that this happened on a ramp as it does give a little when you land on them.
