I hope that if I ever blow it big I'm even half as lucky as this guy. Here's to being young and lucky!

That said, calling this accident preventable is an understatement. Hand lowering himself until he felt tension from the belay would have kept that guy from decking, plain and simple.

Edit: for clarity
