BMX rider Dane Searls is in a coma after a failed jump from a nightclub balcony into a pool on Sunday. Searls, who set a world record on Friday with an 18-meter dirt jump, injured his back and head when he landed headfirst on a cement deck surrounding the pool at Billy’s Beach House in Australia. The 23-year-old is most famous for his viral “Giants of Dirt” project.
