Robert Stafsing Brutal Parkour CrashIf you’re like us, you’ve watched some of those amazing parkour artists and thought to yourself, “don’t these guys ever get hurt?”

Yes.  They do.

Parkour artist Robert Stafsing was recently filming a new video for his fans when he completely wiped out while trying to jump from rooftop to rooftop.

His face slammed into the roof, then he fell about 15 feet to the ground.

In all, Robert needed 19 titanium plates, 38 titanium screws, 21 stitches to the face, 14 stitches to his mouth, and 30 to 50 surgical staples from ear to ear.

Fortunately, Robert is expected to make a full recovery.  You can check him out on Facebook here and here.

Check out his wipeout and the aftermath below (WARNING: not for the squeamish!)…
