The man, right, can clearly be seen lining up to perform his stunt above the concrete stairs
The man leaped onto the railing in an effort to slide down the flight of steps on his board
During the minute-long video, the man can be seen riding his skate board at the top of the stairs and leaping onto the rail.
Instead of balancing carefully on the board as it slides down the rail, the man made a mistake.
The board can be seen squirting out from underneath the man who was in the middle of the air.
Without the board, the man attempts to paddle his feet like a cartoon character as he headed for the concrete below.
The man landed heavily on his left leg which is immediately bent at an unnatural angle leaving him on the floor in agony.
One of his considerate friends retrieves the man’s skateboard although it is unlikely, given the nature of his injuries, that he would be back on his board in the near future.
He lost control of his board and was left paddling his feet in mid air like a cartoon character
