Patrick Luk, 22, is lucky to be alive after a slab cut loss on Mt Adams sending him down the 1000′ face.

“I remember tumbling down a little bit and one point I got thrown on my back and was going down head first kind of like reverse luge and I just remember going airborne, I felt weightless and at that point I was just like oh crap,” he said. “I thought that I was done.”

When Luk came to a rest at the bottom of the face he tried to call 911 but could not get service so he spent the next seven hours crawling back to his car.

Luk suffered a concussion, broken nose and a possible knee injury, but amazingly is okay otherwise. He wants to remind other adventure seekers of one thing: to wear a helmet.

“The helmet that I was wearing saved my life,” he said.
