David Salmon was gliding into a curve when his momentum launched him over the lip of the slide. Salmon fell 10 or 15 feet to the ground below, according to Fox-4.
“Too dang old to be going down water slides,” Salmon said in a Facebook post. “Fell off this one that is over a rocky cliff.”
The slide is located at a private residence, according to the Fox station.
Rescue crews had a difficult time reaching Salmon because of the terrain around the slide. He was eventually brought to a hospital in Salmon said in a Facebook post that he suffered a broken arm, fractured ribs, and multiple lacerations to his back, arms and side. On the plus side, he won’t need surgery
