Ryan Szymanski is a daredevil from Charlottesville, Virginia. His Instagram is filled with daring leaps of faith taken all over the country. But one plunge went terribly wrong. You can hear the splash as his body hits the water. When he slammed into the water, he tore every ligament and tendon in his right knee, nearly losing his leg. It will take Szymanski two years to recover. “They were able to fix everything inside without having to amputate the leg, but they came close,” he says.
