What starts as a stunning BASE jump turns into a lucky escape for an unlucky French  stuntman.

28 year old Kevin Marret filmed himself BASE jumping from the top of a 280ft wind turbine in the Midi- Pyrenees region of his native France.

The beautiful footage starts out well as Kevin leaps from the windmill and freefalls for a moment before pulling his shoot and gliding against the picturesque backdrop.

However he has too much downward momentum due to opening his shoot a little late and as he comes into land he loses his footing and collapses into a ball on the floor.

Luckily Kevin wasn't hurt and sees the funny side of the whole affair

Kevin from Paris, France said:

"I was visiting the location for Base jumping."

"I performed my chute pull too low plus it was a bit windy"

"I need less delay before I pull next time"
