I think the only thing that got hurt was the cell phone that got dropped. Nobody fell out.

Really? The narrative suggests otherwise:

Judging from his moans, he's not doing well...

On the original source, this video titled "illegal hunter falls from helicopter" caused great uproar and happiness . However, several users have pointed out these were not hunters but wildlife veterinarians and biologists who were only shooting tranquilizer darts.

No info on the man's condition.
happened in Limpopo, South Africa

It has doctored audio, local knowledge says it was just a dropped phone.

Surely, this wasn't actually IN a Robinson - just the opposite, in fact.

I imagine the poor bloke looked at the accident stats and decided he had a better chance of survival if he just jumped out

lets be realistic, if he truly fell out, he really didn't get hurt in the Robby....he got hurt by the sudden stop at the bottom.

Robby found out he was from here, so he pushed him out!
