There's nothing like the exhilarating feeling of free falling to earth at 120 mph, unless of course something goes wrong.

A couple of days ago a gentlemen from Australia named Chris Jones decided he was going to jump out of an airplane at 13,000 feet. The conditions were near perfect: the sky was blue, the temperature was mild, and the winds were light. Everything was going smooth and it seemed like a beautiful day for a skydive. Chris's initial leap out of the plane went off as planned. He looked like a graceful bird who'd just burst into flight! Then something terrible happened: Chris had a seizure in mid-flight.

Instructor Sheldon McFarlane, who was wearing a helmet camera, struggled to catch up with Jones. McFarlane finally managed to grab Jones at about 4,000 feet and pull the rip cord. Jones regained consciousness and landed uneventfully. (CNN.COM)

Thankfully this story had a happy ending. Here's the video!

Years ago, I decided to go skydiving. It was a sunny but frigid day in March. There was still snow on the ground but that didn't deter me from taking the leap. The scariest part of the experience was watching the mandatory, emergency training videos prior to the jump. The video they showed was quite graphic. It even featured an ambulance pulling up next to a victim on the ground. I also had to sign a few release forms before taking the jump.

The video quality isn't the greatest because I never transferred my flight from VHS to DVD. I ended up taking a video of a video with my smartphone camera.
