    A professional Canadian skier managed to survive a 500-metre fall down a mountain in Alaska.

    Ian McIntosh was attempting to ski down the so-called spine of a mountain when his feet “just dropped out from under me.” Aerial footage shows McIntosh’s body hurling down the mountain, as he grunts and moans. It took less than a minute for him to fall 1,600 feet, according the film company that made the video.

    This idiot probably has a wife and kids too. I'll never understand these people that risk their lives for a few seconds of thrill.

    Doesn't matter. If I had a family, I wouldn't risk my life.

    No. You're right. I wish my Dad would've died base jumping when I was 6. That'd be awesome!!
