This guy knows he's going down just before he does, and that's the scariest part of the whole thing.
Can you imagine those few seconds, when you feel your hold giving out, and you know that there is absolutely NOTHING you can do about it?
This guy seems incredibly lucky. That was a seriously nasty fall, and he's fortunate to have been using good equipment. His rope saved his life, no question about it. His finger looks pretty good at beat up, but really he escapes no worse for the wear.
