Skydive jumpmaster saves man who has seizure 9,000 feet in the air

This is terrifying. 

A man named Christopher has posted a video of himself skydiving back in November of 2014.

The video looks like any other skydiving video; he’s being filmed by his jumpmaster, who dives out of the small plane with him.

He floats around in the air for a few moments before it’s time to pull the ripcord and begin the process of landing.

But right before Christopher is able to pull the ripcord, he suffers a massive seizure.

It’s a major emergency, as Christopher cannot pull the ripcord.

Luckily, his jumpmaster is able to catch him and pull his ripcord.

This video is making its way around the internet right now, with over 3 million views in the last 24 hours.

Here’s what Christopher wrote in the video description:

Possibly the scariest moment of my life. On the 14th of November 2014 while doing stage five of my Accelerated Free Fall program I have a near death experience. At around 9000ft I have a seizure while attempting a left hand turn. I then spend the next 30 seconds in free fall unconscious. Thankfully my jumpmaster manages to pull my ripcord at around 4000ft. I become conscious at 3000 ft and land safely back to the ground.
