Before we dive into this shocking video, I would like to raise the question, how is doing flips with a snowmobile an actual sport? We know there is only so many activities you can do in snow, but really?

Last night Australian snowmobile rider Jackson Strong was attempting some ridiculous in-air flip maneuver when he failed to land back on his seat, sending his ride straight into the crowd with the accelerator gear stuck on go.

Only one man was injured, but this freak accident could have been way worse if it weren’t for some quick thinking by the spectators in attendace.
