Stuntman cheats death when car jump from building rooftop goes horribly wrong
| Last updated
A stuntman had an absolute nightmare when they attempted to jump from one building to another... in a tiny little car.
These days, would-be daredevils almost killing themselves with ill thought out plans is nothing new. But this one is particularly tense:
The confident 32-year-old lined up his little Lada Niva - I mean, it was never going to go well, was it? - with a ramp, hoping his speed would carry him through the air and safely to the other side.
However, as you can imagine, it did not go according to plan. At all.
In footage from the bizarre incident, the lad can be seen in the motor on the rooftop of the building opposite.
He then attempts to accelerate as quickly as possible and sail over to the adjacent property. But it quickly becomes apparent that this is not going to happen.
As Chebotarev approaches the ramp in the white vehicle, it's evident he has not built up enough speed to make the leap.
And as he gets airborne the car's windshield smashes into the edge of the roof opposite.
It then immediately drops, with the car plummeting, quite sharply, to the ground some 50ft below.
Incredibly, Chebotarev managed to survive the incident and was fortunate not to suffer any really serious injuries.
The stuntman was later seen moving about, climbing out of the horrific wreckage.
Checking he was ok, someone shouted down to Chebotarev, asking him: "Are you in one piece?'
To which one person replied: "I cannot be sure."
But, incredibly, despite suffering some injuries, the driver managed to make to back to his feet.
"I almost survived," he posted to social media. "I'm going to hospital.'
He then asked his fans: "You must have buried me, right?
Chebotarev, who has been involved in all manner of crazy stunts, told his followers: "You knew I wouldn't stop."
The viral daredevil was subsequently treated for injuries to his legs and feet.
"I do not deny, I won't be able to walk. I could barely get up," he said afterwards.
This isn't the first life or death stunt Chebotarev has been involved in, though; last year, he broke his spine after flying a car 131ft over a river.
"Friends always called me a psycho," he said. "As far as I remember, I've always loved extremes."
Follow your dream, champ.
