People think of skydiving as a jolly thing but, that’s no guarantee of safety, as 22-year-old Australian Christopher Jones learned the hard way.
Jones got the approval from his doctor for skydiving and was participating in the freefall. But around 9,000 feet from the ground he had a seizure and lost concious.
Luckily for him his jump instructor was able to reach out for him and get him on time.He regained consciousness near 3,000 feet and was able to land safely.
Check out the video of that deadly incident:
Jones was wearing a automatic activation devices (AADs) that would have triggered the parachute even if his instructor couldn’t reach him on time. Scary though!!!
