Man Has Seizure While Skydiving – ‘ I Was in Free Fall Unconscious’
One man who was skydiving in Australia has a second chance in life and a heroic dive instructor to thank.
Christopher Jones described the "scariest moment" of his life in a video published on YouTube on Sunday.
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.
Dive instructor Sheldon McFarlane insists he's no hero.
Jones told Fox News he is finished skydiving, forever. Good call, sir.
