An Australian base jumper spent hours dangling from a cliff-side tree after getting caught in a rogue gust of wind.
Rory Allen has shared a video of his brush with death after being pulled toward the rock face after hurling himself off a cliff in the adrenaline inducing sport.
Allen was left dangling for more than two hours and ended up sustaining a broken foot.
“OK this is f—ing scary,” he said in the video posted to TikTok.
“I’m hanging from a tree in a base jumping harness.
“Its just got windy…. if the tree breaks or my canopy breaks, I’m going to break my back and some legs.”
He managed to avoid suspension trauma, where blood gets trapped, by taking turns to “release each leg and wiggle” his feet.
Allen is now trying to raise money for the rescuers who came to his aid.
The dare devil said he will be “back at it” within weeks.
