Free-Fall Acceleration: Downward Toss

CLMECH-FIDE7N

A ball is tossed downwards from a cliff with an initial velocity of $-5.3\text{ m/s}$, hitting the ground $3.2\text{ s}$ later.

Assuming the effects of air resistance are negligible, what was the velocity of the ball (in $\text{m/s}$) just before impact?
