Helmet Cam Captures Heroic Skydiving Rescue

Posted By on Fri, Jan 31, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Warning: Don't watch this video if you want to go skydiving but you're afraid to make the jump.

The Telegraph posted a video of a skydiver free falling to his death after colliding with another parachute jumper 12,500ft in the air.

James Lee, 25 was taking part in a jump in Wiltshire when just seconds after leaping from the plane he was hit on the back of the head by another skydiver.

Lee's helmet cam captured the other skydivers storming in to save his life in a matter of seconds. Two divers position Lee and deployed his parachute for a safe landing. The video says that Lee had no recollection of what happen.

This makes me want to drive to Eloy and skydive. Who's coming with me?
