Skier falls off cliff and captures it on helmet cam

When someone falls off a cliff, the result can be fatal. At the very least, a few broken bones, right?

So consider skier Stefan Ager lucky. He walked away without a scratch after falling backwards off a huge, rocky cliff as he was putting on his skis.

We don't know anything about Stefan other than he suffered "no injuries" and that he's "fine" after falling a reported 400 meters (about 1,300 feet) off a cliff somewhere on a snowy mountain. 

Thanks to his helmet cam, you can experience the cliff fall right along with him, starting when he steps into the second ski binding at about the 1:00 mark:

Next time, Stefan, try to avoid falling off a cliff. Better yet, avoid those steep dropoffs altogether.

Now, if you'd like to feel every bump and tumble in slow motion, take a look here.

Thanks, William at!
