Broke both arms and a leg and all he complained about was his neck "in pain"?
Thats one tough South Africian.
Amazing he was not more seriously injured.

JTapia, I agree, this is one tough man! But I wonder if his neck pain was so overwheling, in conjuction, with the extra added adrenaline from the fall that he didn't realize that his arms and legs were broken?

I'd imagine, after an 18 story fall, it takes a little while for the mind to catch up.

All you got to do is tuck and roll and no height is too exreme!

Not only is the dude tough, but he is polite too. I can assure you that if I fell 18 floors and had anything to say after the fact it would not be fit to print. Wink

Yes sir Quicksilver I would imagine that the adrenaline was at maximum levels in his bloodstream !!!

I know that when I played football in high school and I took a pretty good lick in the head it took me 3 days to realize that my nose was broken also. The blow to my head and resulting concussion really screwed up my brain in that I really didn't know that I had gotten hurt for several weeks until someone would remind me of it. I would look into the mirror and be astonished at my black and blue eyes, wondering "what the hell happened to me !!! ". It still took me almost 6 months to finally remember everything that happened that night. A very scary feeling to say the least.
