I bet not even the survivor knows.. But lives to tell the tale to his grandchildren.. "Once upon a time, I fell 5,000 feet and lived!"
I believe all this guy broke was his nose..
This proves that as humans, we are capable of surviving longer drops rather than short ones.. It must be from catching so much wind that you're able to glide down like superman rather than a straight drop.. This is my theory.. So you go diagonal towards the wind and make your way to the ground.. I will remember this if I need to ever jump out of a tall building.. This is of course my theory..
I also read something earlier today of another man surviving a 10,000 foot free fall, amazing..
