I would be terrified if I fell and broke my ankle on the corner of 14th Street, let alone solo on a mountain top. Coloradan Lexi De Forest was hiking in the Wyoming hills when she jumped a trench and pulled a McKayla Maroney — she didn’t stick the landing. Lexi broke her ankle, badly. Scared and alone, she made a video in which she sarcastically but not sarcastically at all says goodbye to her family and friends, explains, ha ha ha, how there are bears around, and shows us her twisted foot, which looks like it’s on backwards.
It’s 129 Hours condensed into six minutes without the ominous buzzard nor the sawing through the limbs, but it’s riveting nonetheless.
