VIDEO: Active Duty Military Wingsuits Into Tree and Survives

Left scapula fracture, left acromian fracture, left neck abrasion, left clavicle fracture, 3 left side rib fractures, left hemopneumothorax, grade 1, liver laceration, head trauma, multiple scalp lacerations…this is the list of injuries 30 year old active duty military member Eric Dossantos suffered after connecting at 90mph while on a wingsuit flight through Chamonix.  The accident was due to a loss of speed and altitude and the video is terrifying.

HERE IS AN INTERVIEW WITH ERIC DETAILING THE JUMP

He actually snapped the top 20 feet off the tree he impacted.  Here are pics of the tree from an article topgunbase.ws which I highly suggest you read.

There is a GoFundMe.com page set up to supplement his insurance and help him  afford Hyperbaric chamber treatment (which isn’t covered). Here is the pitch:

“This GoFundMe is for our good friend Eric. He’s an active duty military and does anti-terrorism security. On September 29th while living out his dream by proximity wingsuit base jumping in Chamonix, France. Eric made a mistake that most people pay with their lives, he lost his speed and altitude and flew into a tree.

Eric flew through a tree going over 90mph, he should have died, but and for the lack of a better word, it’s a MIRACLE he’s still with us.  His injuries were “only” left scapula fracture, left acromian fracture, left neck abrasion, left clavicle fracture, 3 left side rib fractures, left hemopneumothorax, grade 1, liver laceration, head trauma, multiple scalp lacerations.

Altho Eric has a good insurance, they are not going to cover everything. We don’t know the full extend of his head trauma yet, but we are hopefull.

One of the best ways to treat head traumas is with a Hyperbaric chamber (HBOT). And the sooner the better. Unfortnualty that’s rarely ever covered by insurance and it’s expensive. Not treating a head trauma can lead to issues later in life.

Even thou Eric has already gotten the biggest gift a person can get (he’s still alive). He still could use a little bit more. Let’s all get together and help him get the much needed HBOT treatment.

Help spread the word!”
