The video of a man flying off the side of a water slide and falling down a rocky cliff has gone viral on Facebook, garnering 888,000 views in fewer than 24 hours.

David Salmon posted the slow-motion video on his Facebook page, with the caption: "Too dang old to be going down water slides. Fell off this one that is over a rocky cliff. First time in an ambulance. I'm currently in the hospital in Round Rock. Broke my arm (humerus) and fractured ribs. Multiple lacerations on my back, arms and side. Just found out I don't need surgery so that's good news! One more night in Austin, then I can go home to Dallas."

Salmon kept his sense of humor, and let his friends know that he was OK, with the hashtags #waterslide, #fail, #failvideo, #brokenarm and #notdead.
