Shane Brown is one of those daredevils who learn it the hard and painful way that accidents can occur at any point of time, in any manner. When Shane attempted to do a triple front flip into a waterfall, he accidently hit his head on the cliff face, and landed directly on a hidden log in the water. The impact left him in a terrible state. Check out the whole story video.
Shane Brown's daredevil stunt begins with that unsound judgment of the jump!
Shane hit his head accidentally on the edge of the cliff, releasing his tuck position, and landing hard on a submerged log!
Moments later, he was sinking into the water. Fearing for what might have happened, his friend leaped into the water to save him.
Shane ended up breaking 14 ribs and both his shoulder blades.
Shane is now on his way to recovery. The doctors say he is very lucky to not have been paralyzed by the accident. "Doctors told me I'm very lucky not to be paralyzed and I'm thankful for that. Most of my existence revolves around outdoor activity and I would be devastated to have that taken away," he said.
Shane has had to endure severe agonizing pain in order to close up his terrible wounds.
Shane was bedridden for weeks following his surgery. Later, his mother and aunt rented a house nearby in Hawaii to help him through his recovery. Now, Shane has almost completely recovered.
