FRANCE. (CNN) – A California daredevil woke up in a French hospital after a flight in his wingsuit went wrong.

Eric Dossantos had his camera recording as he base-jumped off of a mountain in the French Alps. Dossantos says something went wrong and he started to run out of airspeed and altitude.

He woke up in the hospital after he says he was in the forest for over three hours. He had apparently fell so fast that he took out a tree and left a debris trail 300-feet long.

Dossantos says he is suffering from moderate brain trauma, but other than that he’s okay. He blamed the crash on trying to fly in a suit way outside his current skill level.
