This man was seriously hurt after flying off a water slide in Texas.

David Salmon posted video of his scary plunge on Facebook after he went over the edge of the slide at a private home near Lake Travis in the Austin area.

The video shows him flying out of a curve in the slide and falling to the rocks below.

“Too dang old to be going down water slides. Fell off this one that is over a rocky cliff,” he wrote in the caption of the video.

Rescue crews had a difficult time reaching Salmon because of the location of the slide, according to Fox4News.

Salmon wrote that he ended up in the hospital with a broken arm, fractured ribs and had lacerations, cuts and bruises on his back, arms and side. Luckily he did not need surgery.

The video has been viewed over 140,000 times on Facebook.
