For those of you who ever wondered what it would feel like to experience a life-threatening fall from an ice cliff, this video is for you. British climber Mark Roberts was climbing Snowdon in north Wales — with what I assume was a GoPro camera strapped to his head — when a chunk of ice fell toward him, causing him to fall. Amazingly, he only suffered a broken ankle and some bruises, but no serious injuries.
Moral of the story: Always have a camera strapped to your head while doing something dangerous. You never know if you may almost die doing it and reach internet fame.
