Standing on the brink of a 50-foot waterfall in Hawaii, Heather Friesen is treated to quite the view. Then, surrounded by the vast greenery that stretches out all around her, she creeps ever closer to the edge. And though Friesen doesn’t know it yet, this will prove to be a disastrous move. After losing her grip on the ground, she plummets all the way down – with her GoPro camera capturing the terrifying accident for posterity.
That fateful incident took place back in 2016, meaning Friesen’s ordeal is now nothing more than a truly awful memory. But while she was extremely lucky to escape with her life, things were never actually going to be the same for her again.
