Remember Fred Syversen, the guy who accidentally broke Jamie Pierre’s record for highest cliff jump when he unintentionally launched a 351-foot cliff in Norway in 2008? Well, Fred is back in the headlines again. UnofficialSquaw.com has the story from Norway’s homeboyski.com of Fred’s latest exploits, a massive crash down a steep chute with three mandatory cliff bands. He was skiing the line in northern Noryway on May 7 while filming with Missing Link productions. He’s lucky to be alive, having escaped from the cartwheel with just a few minor injuries. The film is all in Norwegian, but check out the crash, which starts about half way through this clip. Check out www.unofficialsquaw.com for the rest of the story.
