Drunk Dude Climbs Massive 60 Foot Tree, Falls Off And Nearly Dies

This was always going to end in tears.

20 year old Kyle Ponciano had to be put in a medically-induced coma after suffering a torn abdomen, a partially collapsed and bruised lung, shattered right elbow and broken pelvis, following this drunk stunt  at the Washougal River in Washington:

Kyle said:

I remember dozing off and my friends yelling in my face, ‘Kyle, wake up! It was wild. I definitely didn’t think anything like this could ever happen to me. I want people to know they’re not invincible.

Yeah, we know we’re not invincible Kyle. That’s why we’re not climbing giant trees and jumping off into the rocks below. Respect to his mates for getting him out of there though — doubt he’d have been able to save himself with all those injuries.

If only the guy who fell off that building to impress his girlfriend had been so lucky…
