cool, but not cool for his leg.
haha “Not cool”
Im no doctor, but maybe he’s just accepted it and has a relaxed attitude while he waits to be rescued.
His bodies in shock and pumped full of adrenaline. Luckily he’d have been picked up by the chopper and pumped full of morphine before the real pain set in but man that’s gotta suck.
Ammon is no pussy. Shock or not, I’d be surprised if he acted any other way. Get well soon bud!
I think he is just pretty happy to not be dead.
Ammon is just like that. The dude has gone through much tougher than this! You have to have kept your cool to have saved yourself AND your leg in the process.
I give him mad props. Very composed.
yeah. that’s ammon. he’s not in shock. he knows how to deal when the shit hits the fan. so sorry he got so badly injured. i hope that they can save his leg and that he gets to climb bigwalls and jump off the top some more, or just take a walk with his mom.
If your foot has been torn off by the ankle you can guarantee his body is in shock, he obviously knows how to keep calm with that amount of adrenaline rushing through his body but you can’t just decide not to go into shock because your too chilled out for chemical reactions released by severe trauma.
Yeah there’s a difference between medical shock and emotional “shock”–he’s not yet in volume shock but he could be if emergency folks don’t reach him quick enough.
This guy makes Tanner look like a pussy
Dude is a Boss
“Shock” is one of the most misused medical terms. Without taking his vitals we can’t say that this guy isn’t going into shock from, say hypovolemia, but as others have commented his demeanor is not that of someone whose body is compensating for hypoperfusion.
Tough SOB. Lucky too.
Like ng said..that’s ammon. That dude has practically had his brains leaking out of his head before.
That is a horrific accident. His pain control is beyond super human.
at least he didnt die. These days a below the knee prosthetics are pretty well designed almost like a real leg. That sucks though, he was smart enough to put a tourniquet above the knee.
Mad props to this guy for remaining sooooo calm given the situation. Super brave dude, obviously filming and talking about it was the only way to comfort himself. Hope he received prompt help and is recovering OK.
Yep that hurts for a while. Mine grew back on eventually, hope his does also. Dilaudid is something I didn’t know I liked until they gave me some, it took the edge off.
dumb azzzz. i farted
Seriously dude! Tosh.0 is going to have a field day with your video. I think this guy should get cast as a one legged Rambo, but with balls the size of coconuts. This guy has such a high pain threshold it makes the guys from BME Pain Olympics look like pussies. Oh wait, they sort of made themselves that way, ha! Well my hat goes off to this guy and loosing his leg for our fucked up enjoyment. And for that I thank you!
Note to self: Move base jumping to end of bucket list – check the optional column.
Thats a nasty injury for sure, heal well man. But I do have a question for somebody in the know. The jump that was filmed and shown on KSL news shows a person jumping off the tombstone. This video looks to be shot closer to town along KC BLVD.. WHat gives there????
Way to handle it like a G
so sorry about this! You are a true composed badass! I hope the best for you.
My best thoughts go out to you!
Micro surgery is amazing these days, tourniquets are not a write off for limbs) big thank you to the armed forces and teaching hospitals who have pushed it so far and made PHTLS what it is today). Hope his timeline for recovery isn’t too bad. Head up brotha!
In a Facebook update Ammon stated that doctors were able to save the foot but there is still a high risk of infection. Get well soon man. Sorry this happened.
Is that one of the cliffs next to the Amasa Back parking lot?
also, that is one tough fuckin dude
