POV footage of a climbing fall

A mountain climber was somehow able to film his terrifying fall while climbing one of the highest mountains of the U.K.

Climber Mark Roberts was scaling Snowdon in North Wales when he fell after being hit by a chunk of falling ice.

He fell and slide down the mountain by approximately 100 feet before he stopped, according to International Business Times. Despite his tumultuous tumble down, his head-mounted camera was still recording.

“There was no feeling of panic, more a concerted effort to protect my head and neck and be aware of what was below me, where I was heading and what I could do to slow and stop myself before I got to the more serious rocky outcrops,” he told IBN. “… I had the foresight to check the cam was still attached and just hoped the vid had recorded. It wasn’t one for repeating.”

Roberts was rescued by the mountain rescue team and was taken to the hospital. He escaped with minor injuries.

And that folks, is why I’d rather keep my two feet on the ground.
