Wingsuit Water CrashBy Rocky Thompson on October 18th, 2011
It’s confirmed that BASE jumper Christopher Brewer survived this 876-foot drop in a wingsuit even though his chute didn’t open. They estimate he was going between 60 and 80mph when he hit the water. The 27-year-old was part of a Bridge Day event and it’s estimated that there were 100,000 people there during the course of the day. That’s quite a few onlookers. The jumper suffered a broken pelvis, lung injuries and a spinal injury. One thing you have to hand it to the guy for – he held the panic at bay and used his wingsuit to slow him down as much as he could even though the chute didn’t open.
