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.

Pointers for journalists: If you want to talk about the bad weather, you might not want to be so literal about it. This may the only time the man appears on television…and yet, he has slipped and fallen on ice for everyone to see.
While this makes for some good entertainment, I’m sure the poor man is at home rubbing and massaging what I imagine is a very sore backside.
New Taylor Swift music, watch out ex-boyfriends!
Taylor Swift released her fourth highly anticipated album Red yesterday and I’ve had it on repeat ever since. Guys: If you’ve ever dated her, be prepared that there’s a song on the album about you. My favourite track so far is “Everything Has Changed” feat. Ed Sheeran. [fireworkswifts]
Cozy knit sweaters and your fave accessary
It’s that awkward time of year when it’s too cold for a T-shirt and not quite cold enough for your winter coat. One of my fave things about fall weather is wearing cozy sweaters; whether it be with leggings or a pair of skinny jeans. You can add a funky necklace to make your outfit POP! [oh-hey-emily]
I’ll admit it, most of the time I’d rather throw on a pair of chocolate Uggs and walk out the door than lace up booties. But after seeing these cute studded boots, I’ve come to the conclusion that they’re worth the extra effort. I don’t think you can ever have enough studs. Agreed? [monmondefou]
Everyone could use a bit of animal print
If you’ve been watching The X-Factor, you’re probably familiar with the animal print contestant CeCe wears on her face and legs. She recently told ANDPOP: “When I paint my face or legs it’s like an alter ego that comes out. It’s an empowering thing and I feel like nobody can mess with me.” [makeupftw]

Either you love fall or you hate it. It’s time to pack up your summer clothes and get ready for jeans, sweats and comfy oversized sweaters. If you’re kinda depressed about the whole change of weather, make yourself some autumn inspired cookies. I’m 99.9% sure you will feel better. [season-a-l.tumblr]
Mason is TOO cute, but it’s time to welcome another baby
On the season finale of KUWTK, you never know what you’re going to expect. I def shed a few tears as Kourtney gave birth (or technically pulled out) her daughter Penelope. Oh just another girl to add to the family. Watch out boys cause Lord Disick will be after you. [fuckyeahdash]
Pause — is that Harry Styles and Ed Sheeran?
Errrm, that’s some serious thrusting! One Direction’s Harry Styles and lyrical guru Ed Sheeran made a little (but impressive) cameo in XO MAN’s ‘Quag‘ music video. You know from Family Guy, “giggity giggity.” [let--us-die-young]

Going to summer camp entails doing several embarrassing things with your peers. Having endured my fair share of childish dance routines, ridiculous costume changes and performing awkward camp songs, the way to fit in with the other campers is to follow suit.
Because if you don’t, you might just end up like this unfortunate soul.
Chris Brown performed in Indianapolis last night and had a little accident. While dancing, the performer fell flat on his ass!
It’s pretty funny and the guy needs a good kick in the ass. So everybody wins.
At least Chris joked about it.
One of her Twitter followers asked, “When’s the next album due?” Rihanna exuberantly replied, “THIS FALL!!!!!”
In July producer Verse Simmonds spoke to MTV News about the progress of the album.
“From what I understand, she’s closing the album up now, and we did two records for her that she really, really loved, and I’m really excited about them as well,” Simmonds said. “They are records that we wrote and produced as the Jugganauts.”
Actor Jesse Metcalfe is in a hospital and recuperating after a 40-foot fall.
The ”Desperate Housewives” gardener was attending a party in Monaco for the World Music Awards on Sunday night when he lost his balance and fell off a hotel balcony, according to British reports.
Metcalfe, 29, was knocked unconscious and immediately transferred to a French Hospital.
A rep for Metcalfe told London’s ‘Sun’ newspaper, “He is a very, very lucky man. The accident could have been fatal,”
Metcalfe plays John Rowland, Gabrielle’s love interest, played by Eva Longoria-Parker on the ABC series ”Desperate Housewives.”
“We are going to speak to the organizers of the World Music Awards as the pathway was very dangerous and we heard someone else tripped up as well,” says Metcalfe’s rep. “It is an issue that needs to be addressed”.
CTV unveiled its fall lineup Monday at a ceremony in downtown Toronto, and despite the network’s already packed schedule, it was able to find room for seven new shows.
For the fourth year in a row, CTV finished the season at number one, gaining ratings in all of its demographics.
To its fall schedule, the network will be adding four new dramas and three new comedies. The dramas include: “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,” starring Matthew Perry; “Smith,” starring Ray Liotta; “Justice,” starring Victor Garber; and “The Nine,” which is producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s new show. The comedies include “Let’s Rob,” “30 Rock” and “The Class.”
“It’s another balanced schedule with strength across the week and power across every genre. Its star power, pedigree and Canadian hits standing shoulder to shoulder with their American counterparts,” says Susanne Boyce, CTV president of programming and chair of the CTV media group.
And CTV has found a way to schedule around the heavily sought after Thursday at 9 p.m. slot ? which is a heavy competition one in the U.S. CTV broadcasts “The O.C.,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “C.S.I.” so it will air the first two shows before the U.S., beginning at 7 p.m.
It will also follow suit with ABC, and will premiere the new show,” Justice” in August, and then when the MLB playoffs begin, “Lost” will air Wednesdays at 9 p.m. for seven straight episodes before its winter hiatus.
