Skydiver knocked unconscious mid-dive, helmet cam captures drama (video)

Quite a dramatic video of a skydiver getting knocked unconscious by another skydiver accidentally running into him, then falling out of control while his helmet cam records the scene.


Fortunately, two other skydivers realized something was wrong, came to his rescue, and were able to deploy his chute. He finally started to regain consciousness before he hit the ground, and landed safely.

    There are at least two people that he forever owes his life to.

  • I’d consider skydiving, while bungee jumping there’s no way. Not sure why the difference.

    That’s an adventure you’ll find on my No-Way-Ever Bucket List, right along with bungee jumping off of anything.

    well that would be one painless way to go if you chose to, unconscious of course.
