Manchester thrill-seeker Dan Huddleston built a home zip-wire and thought it would be a good idea to try it out while at his cousin’s birthday party on June 16. Confident in his abilities he climbed onto a tree which had the wire attached and went to swing. Unfortunately his attempt didn’t quite go as planned, however, when he had a nasty land on the lawn below seconds later. He broke two vertebrae as a result. Credit:YouTube/DanHuddleston.
