The man who fell 3300 feet and only broke his nose

1972: 19-year-old Bob Hall fell 3300 feet when his parachute malfunctioned. He landed face first on a runway. Somehow, he not only survived, but he only broke his nose and busted up his teeth.

The photo below was taken after his fall.

Reminded me again about the Yugoslav Airlines stewardess who fell 31,000 feet in the tail piece of a plane. AFAIK, she's still the record-holder for Longest fall without a parachute (among survivors, anyway).
