It’s painful to even watch the clip, so imagine actually living it.
 
Video footage shows a Dallas man losing his grip on a water slide and flying off the edge, tumbling onto a rocky cliff.
 
According to The Huffington Post , David Salmon fell 10 or 15 feet to the ground below after his momentum launched him over the lip of the slide, which was reportedly located at a private residence.
 
“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.”

 
Due to the terrain around the slide, rescue crews had a difficult time reaching Salmon.
 
He suffered a broken arm, fractured ribs and multiple lacerations to his back, but luckily will not need surgery, he said.
 
Since being uploaded Monday, the video already has more than 1.6 million views.
