The Canadian was taking a turn when he fell into a five-foot trench that he did not see.

"From there, my slough took over and their was no way to stop, I pulled my airbag to help prevent against any possible trauma injuries as I tumbled to the bottom," McIntosh recalled.

McIntosh can be heard screaming as he cartwheels down the mountainside in about 40 seconds, reports The Telegraph.
