Travis Pastrana Accident: Travis Pastrana is currently making a full recovery from the injuries he sustained during a dangerous parachute stunt. After attempting to leap from a high-rise downtown hotel to Huizenga Plaza below, the motorsports competitor and stuntman, who is 38 years old, was taken to a hospital in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on Saturday.
After jumping from the top of the hotel and rapidly gathering speed as he descends toward the ground, Pastrana can be seen in a video of the incident that was released on Instagram attempting to maintain control of his parachute as he falls toward the ground. The film concludes with a shot of the 11-time X Games gold champion falling with a strong impact on the grass close to the hotel. This shot can be seen in the final few seconds of the video.

According to the publicist for Pastrana, who spoke to a local news site called WSVN, the stuntman, who was filming a web series at the time of the accident, fractured his pelvis in the incident and required surgery. The extreme sports enthusiast, who was named as one of the three judges on America’s Got Talent: Extreme in October before production was halted due to a stunt going wrong, has a history of attempting fear-inducing stunts over the course of his life, including jumping out of a plane without a parachute in the year 2007.
“That one was more of a pass-or-fail proposition. It was more of a trust test to see if my pals who were parachuting with me liked me enough to catch me when I was falling from the sky “In 2019, Pastrana revealed the information to The Guardian regarding the stunt.
“It turned out to be illegal, and I got into a lot of problems,” he added, adding, “Oddly enough, jumping out of a plane without a parachute is not the dangerous thing; the clutching onto your friend who is wearing a parachute and hoping you don’t fall is the most terrifying part.”
