The Worst Half Pipe Crash I Have Ever Seen
Simon Dumont had the worst half pipe crash I have ever seen today at X Games 14 pipe practice.
First off, let me say this isn't a good sequence, I wasn't really ready and kinda had to scramble to get into position, so I cut him off on a few frames, but you will get the picture.
Simon did a 15 plus foot double flip and landed on his side on the icy coping of the pipe. The sound his body made was horrendous and he was knocked unconscious and laying in the bottom of the pipe it was scary and sickening. I really thought he was traumatically injured.
About 10 minutes later, he walked away. Simon Dumont is one tough cookie, he's made of muscle and trains hard, no ordinary human could have survived this crash, the impact on the lip was like hitting cement. We are all glad Simon is okay and he plans to compete this week in the pipe. Superhuman.
