A skydiving instructor pulled off a lifesaving manoeuvre, opening the parachute of a student who had lost consciousness after suffering a seizure during his jump.
Nomadic Adrenaline, the YouTube user who posted the frightening skydive video, says he was unconscious for 30 seconds during free fall.
Here’s how he describes it:
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.
