skydiver survives seizure during jump.

Recommended Posts

Apparently the video of this skydiver in western Australia was uploaded to youtube yesterday.

 

He was a trainee and had an epileptic seizure shortly after ju!ping out of a perfectly good working airplane. His instructor grabbed him and pulled the chute. He did have an automatic system which would have deployed the chute but the instructor thought he'd best try to deploy the chute ASAP.

 

This ABC news link has the video and full story.
