Travis Pastrana breaks his pelvis after skydiving

Famous pilot Travis Pastrana parachuted from the roof of a hotel and broke his pelvis after a bad landing.

Travis Pastrana is an American motorsport driver. He became known for his performances in supercross, motocross, freestyle as well as in rally. If at the wheel or on the handlebars, he has already had many fractured bones, this time it is a parachute jump went wrong.

Hard landing

While shooting a video, Travis Pastrana had to jump from the top of the Hyatt hotel in Florida. Unfortunately, not everything went as planned. When jumping, the parachute deployed well and the descent obviously went smoothly. On the other hand, it seems that Pastrana arrived too quickly on the ground dragging a hard landing. So brutal that the pilot then had the fractured pelvis !

The Fort Lauderdale firefighters then took charge of him quickly and we quickly taken to the hospital. If he was taken in a serious but stable condition, he could benefit from an operation that went well. It has since been confirmed that he is recovering uneventfully.


The stunt was to be part of a YouTube video. The latter would probably include a session of gymkhana in and around downtown Miami, as well as on the beaches bordering the city. The car provided by Hoonigan, and recently unveiled, was a Subaru GL Wagon de 1983. Cheerfully prepared, she develops more than 900 hp !
