HORRIFIC CLIFF FALL – Does NOT Make Jump!

HORRIFIC CLIFF FALL – Does NOT Make Jump!

July 24, 2019 100 By William Morgan


– [Camera Man] Action.
– [Woman] Oh dear god!
(tribal music)
– [Host] As the sun
drops toward the horizon,
golden light casts across
the rugged boulders
and picturesque landscape.
Which makes Tucson,
Arizona one of the most
epic filming locations
in the southwest.
The Brave Wilderness
crew and I love
to visit this location,
as it has provided
an incredible backdrop for
many of our desert episodes.
And while most of the
dangers we have faced
are covered in
scales or stingers,
it is often times
the environment
that poses some of
the most dangers.
Cactus spines are
an obvious landmine.
But what you don’t
realize, is the terrain
is laced with
sharp jagged rocks.
Many of which, can easily
twist an ankle, or worse.
Every time we visit a location,
we face the
challenging landscapes,
so we can get the
best and most epic
looking B-roll that we can.
However, sometimes these shots
don’t go according to plan.
And all it takes
is one little slip
for a single shot to
go very, very wrong.
– [Woman] Oh dear god!
– [Camera Man] Are you okay?
Did you land on your pack?
– [Host] Yeah.
– [Camera Man]
You hurt your arm?
– [Host] Nah, I’m all right.
– You sure?
– Yeah.
– Dude.
– That was a thumper.
Did you get that on camera?
– [Camera Man] Yeah.
– Okay, let’s take one more
look at that missed jump.
This time, in slow motion.
I nailed my launch
point, full projection
off of my left foot.
I cleared the gap, but landed
on a rounded
outcrop, and slipped.
When I fell, the
momentum toppled
me backward, and I flipped
head first right off the cliff.
I did a complete
reverse somersault,
and landed with a thud onto
my head, shoulder, and pack.
Every one in a while,
guys, I miss a jump.
And I just landed
funny, my foot slipped,
and I literally
fell about 15 feet.
I messed up my
elbow pretty good,
back first into the rocks.
Filming the show is dangerous,
we’re just doing
B-roll shots right now.
And that one was bad, messed
up my hat a little bit.
Couple scars for the hat,
couple scars for the arms.
But I’m okay, and you’re all
gonna see that video, and go.
You can actually hear my mom
screaming in the background.
That’s probably the farthest
drop I’ve ever survived.
– [Camera Man] Let’s
see how far that is.
You were going head first.
– Head first.
– All the way down.
– Head over heels all
the way down, landed
in this hole like this.
– [Camera Man] So let’s
take a look and see
how, what that looks like.
– Guys, this isn’t soft.
This is rocks.
Whoo, hurt my
shoulder a little bit,
but all risks of
making Breaking Trail.
And this is why you never
want to come out here
and jump around the rocks
like you see me doing.
Just a B-roll shot,
and sure enough,
that one almost got my life.
Whoo, that was a close call!
Over the course of filming
our Brave Wilderness shows,
I’ve sustained many injuries.
And whether they were bites,
(screaming)
pinches,
(screaming)
or stings.
(screaming)
The majority of them
have been intentional,
so that we can learn
about these animals.
However, when it comes to
environmental injuries,
like falling into a cactus,
or being hit by a rogue wave,
these are usually the worst.
And trust me when I
say, I am no stranger
to using a trauma kit.
The good news, is that I
have managed to walk away
from all of these mishaps.
And we always make it a point to
show you how we clean
up the aftermath.
The good news is that
Coyote Peterson bounces.
Still not something
that we aren’t
gonna break out the
trauma kit to clean me up.
Here, can we check this out.
This arm has taken a beating
on this trip to Arizona.
Swollen elbow, velvet ant
sting, tarantula hawk sting.
(screaming and grunting)
That’s actually worse
than an alligator bite.
(grunting)
Just a temporary field clean up.
I put my elbows down first,
elbows took all the impact.
And then of course, all of that
shock, trauma to my shoulders.
Fortunately I didn’t
dislocate my shoulder,
but I can promise
you guys this much,
it is going to be
sore in the morning.
Well, we learned a really
valuable lesson tonight,
Coyote pack.
When you are out
there in the wild,
whatever you do, do
not jump from rocks.
Because if you land
wrong, you may fall
as far as 15 feet, if not more.
End up with some major bandages,
or quite possibly
without your life.
I’m Coyote Peterson,
be brave, stay wild,
we’ll see ya on
the next location!
All right, let’s go
get me an ice pack!
– [Child] You are in trouble!
– [Host] Looking
back on this nearly
tragic fall, it is
fair to say that
I have learned a
very valuable lesson.
Jumping boulders
just simply is not
necessary to make our
episodes look any better.
So don’t be surprised
if in the future,
you see me walking, and not
jumping through
the environments.
If you thought this
On Location episode
was extreme, make sure
to go back and watch
my accidental run in with
the Teddy Bear Cholla.
And don’t forget,
subscribe, so you can
join me and the crew on this
season of Breaking Trail.
– [Crew Man] Think happy
thoughts, one, two, three!
(screaming)
– [Host] Oh, wow!
That one hurt.
