Officials at Table Mountain Park in South Africa say they will fine and possibly press charges against American wingsuit pilot Jeb Corliss a day after he crashed into the mountain and broke both his legs following a 200-foot fall. Corliss clipped a ledge on a jump and immediately pulled his emergency chute. It's not the first time Corliss has been in trouble with the law.

We will definitely fine him and possibly press charges," park spokesperson Merle Collins said.
