Extreme base jumper Maria Steinmayr escaped death when her parachute failed while parachuting from the roof of the Hotel Bali in Benidorm, Spain.

Maria was one of seventeen contestants in the World Championship Extreme Base Jumping competition that features daredevils jumping from buildings.

The video shows her taking the dramatic jump off the roof and releasing the parachute. When it opened, it failed to open properly, which sent her plummeting to the ground at high speeds.

She was hurtled into the side of the building and landed on the balcony of a tenth floor hotel room.

Maria only sustained minor injuries, but the accident resulted in her withdrawal from the competition.
