Man flies off water slide onto rocky cliff





DALLAS (Salvi Law) – Summer is a time of year that is filled with trips to the beach, pool or water parks. But oftentimes, these fun-filled trips are plagued with the possibility of danger. And one recent incident in Texas serves as a frightening reminder of that fact.

A Dallas man sailed off an elaborate backyard water slide earlier this week, and the whole incident was caught on camera. The man told FOX News he fell 10 to 15 feet after flying off the slide and landed on a rocky cliff. As a result of the incident, he suffered a broken arm, fractured ribs, and cuts on his back.

The man’s friend caught the incident on camera. Watch the frightening moment, here:

Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P.C. would like to remind thrill-seekers to exercise caution when taking part in summertime activities. Follow these safety tips from the American Red Cross whenever you are in or near the water:

  • Swim in designated areas that are supervised by lifeguards
  • Always swim with a buddy, never let anyone swim alone
  • Never leave a young child unattended near the water
  • Have young children and inexperienced swimmers wear a life vest, but do not rely on left vests alone
  • Avoid alcohol use
  • Know how to call 911 if an emergency should arise
