Bam Margera's Painful Kayak Disaster

CAUGHT ON TAPE

breaking news

061112_bam_waterfall_launchBam Margera's guts busted through his abdominal lining when he plummeted over a 100 ft cliff in a kayak ... and now TMZ has obtained footage of the stunt that sent Bam to the E.R.

We broke the story ... the "Jackass" star needed emergency surgery to fix a nasty hernia he sustained during the kayak stunt at an Oregon waterfall last week with pro kayaker Steve Fisher.

In the footage, Fisher warns Margera to "tense everything" before they go off the cliff -- but when the duo smash into the water, the force of the impact was so intense, Bam was ejected from the vessel ... and he suffered damage to his abdominal wall.

Moments after the stunt, Bam was seen smiling and laughing ... but he soon realized something was wrong and went to a hospital ... where doctors performed emergency surgery to treat the hernia.

When we caught up with Bam after the incident, the daredevil told us he might need more surgery in the fall.

Wonder who he's going to blame this on? Whenever something bad happens to him, he always blames it on someone else. You can bet he'll milk this for as long as he can. He's not even relevant anymore. The world knows what a jerk he is and no one cares.

I will rejoice when this POS finally kills himself, like I did when his friend died. May they all rest in pieces!

You'd think these guys would have wised up after one of their best friends died a year ago this month. I feel bad for Bam's parents because one day he's going to die from one of his stunts and they're going to have to bury him.
