Biggest Badasses Alive: Jake Brown

For my next installment of Biggest Badasses Alive I picked Jake Brown. You may remember seeing this on the news, Jake Brown was skating Big Air at X-Games XIII when his board went out from under him 30+ feet up in the air. He survived with only minor injuries...to say the least; he even tried to get up and walk under his own power. I have here two videos, the first is the fall and the second is a telephone interview between him and X-Games Host Sal Masekela. I picked him because I saw a commercial for E-60 featuring a doctor talking about Jake Brown and how survivors of falls from that height usually shorten their lifespan. But hey, he's still one of the biggest badasses alive.
