Romanian Judge gives a 10.0!

by Seth Mela

I'm not sure there's ANY amount of training that could prepare someone for falling off a cliff . . . but this might be close.

21-year-old Dylan Scheutz of Idaho Springs, Colorado is a GYMNAST. And a few weeks ago, he was hiking with a few friends, tripped . . . and fell off a 100-foot cliff.

And as he was free falling . . . his gymnastics training kicked in. According to one of his friends, quote, "He spotted his landing and then kind of did a front flip over himself."

Dylan stuck the landing . . . sort of. He landed on his feet, and wound up with two broken legs, two broken ankles, and a punctured lung . . . but he SURVIVED. And he says his gymnastics training is the only reason he's alive right now.

He's still in the hospital and has had two surgeries so far. His mom says his doctors expect him to make a full recovery . . . and he'll be able to keep doing gymnastics.
