Ladies and Gentlemen, we have the world`s best medical staff here... unfortunately they are on vacation at the moment so the people you see rushing out to the skater are actually just fans from the crowd.

There would be no way I could walk away after that. Even if I wasn`t hurt that much, I would demand a stretcher.

that was a really lucky landing. i think he landed just right so that he wouldn`t sustain any serious injuries... and i think his shoes saved his legs and his tail bone haha.

I saw this. Ouch.
The way his shoes flew off, I thought he broke his legs.
He fell pretty good though; he landed in a way that caused minimal damage, considering...

Can`t believe they just let him get up, even if he could get up that could result in further injury like a broken back. If you pause it on the last 2 seconds you can see his whole upper body being bent in half while his legs flail in the air. Guess "best medical staff" doesn`t say much.

With how he landed right on his back, he`s lucky he only got stress fractures in his vertebrae, that looked like the type of thing that could easily paralyze you.

That was one smart, cool sucker...

It takes a lot of brains and a lot of self-control to stop all that arm-flailing and tuck your body into a position where you`ll probably land better when you`re watching the ground whirl up to meet you...

Wow, and his shoes did pop off... And he did hit the first-ever 720, according to the commentator....

Apparently, though, a 720 makes your board go "squirrely"

damn it would suck if they told him it didnt count after falling off.

people flap their arms and legs in the air as an attempt to maneuver themselves out of landing on their face

SPrink7, it`s called walking away because he, you know, walked away... him being knocked out has nothing to do with it. The fact that they didn`t have to carry him out on a stretcher is pretty remarkable.

That isn`t walking away then. That`s being knocked out, and then walking away. Walking away is when you get straight up out of it.

Wow. I`ve fallen in a similar way, but it was only on a half pipe, not one of these mega ramps. One tough guy to walk away like that. Hit so hard his shoes fell off.
I saw this on TV, and I was freaking out... He didn`t move at first, so all I was thinking was "Dude, I just saw someone die..."
