If you thought you were tough, 43 year-old Ammon has you beat! He nearly lost his leg while BASE jumping in Moab, Utah and the incident was recorded and posted online.

The 43-year-old man took the jump but his parachute did not fully deploy.  The video shows the man hitting the rock wall several times before finally coming to a rest on a cliff 600 feet above the ground.

In the video, he reacts calmly saying “that didn’t go good.” He suffered a gruesome injury to his leg. He was airlifted to a hospital where doctors performed four reconstructive surgeries over two days, re-attaching his leg.

If you can stomach the video it’s below.
