It's no secret that extreme sports come with risks, but it's easy enough to assume you'll never be "that guy" on the news. Unfortunately, Brazilian daredevil Leonardo Lean Gomes' luck ran out when a sudden gust of wind blew him off Pedra Bonita peak with only a partially-open paraglider as buddy Lorran Pablo records the incident. Although Leonardo's malfunctioning chute still works enough to slow his disastrous plummet to a barely less-than-deadly landing, rescue crews take more than four hours to locate the seriously injured adventurer hidden in the woods.

Only the most experienced kayakers would even consider paddling over a towering 80-foot waterfall, but Bren Orton and his crazy kayaking friends aren't about to let a little acrophobia get in the way of an extreme challenge like this! Too bad for Pirmin that the Eksingdalen river has a few nasty tricks up her sleeve.
