The big wave surfer was enjoying the large swell that hit California on the 20th January, when a severe wipeout ended up in pain.
Parsons suffered a broken neck at the C7 vertebrae and dislocated his shoulder. He was immediately rescued and taken to hospital, where he is expected to fully recover.
The Billabong XXL Facebook page also reported that he went over the falls. I know we all wish Snips a speed recovery.
