While the equipment collapse and subsequent fall look alarming, Stephens confirmed Liebler's report that it was (all things considered) a best case scenario finish.
I'm ok guys! https://t.co/VhTHh9Q0aA— Jalon Stephens (@jalons30) May 11, 2017
In the video posted to Twitter, someone toward the end says, "That video is so viral."
