Basejumper cheats death
Text size Aa Aa

He’s an experienced base-jumper, but 25-year old Matthew Gough doesn’t realise things are about to go not quite as planned. He jumps from 300 metres in Lake Garda, Italy.

When his parachute becomes tangled, he bounces repeatedly against the cliff on the way down. Gough survived with only minor injuries to his feet and ankles. After a brief hospital stay, he returned home to Lichfield in Birmingham, UK.
