The Daily Mail reports that Corliss was traveling at 120 mph when he hit Table Mountain in South Africa. Although he was seriously injured — he broke both legs and could have very well died — he still managed to deploy his parachute to land as safely on the ground as possible. He was then airlifted to the hospital.

Corliss has spent five weeks in the hospital
