If you’ve had reservations about giving skydiving a try because you’re — understandably — terrified, this likely won’t help. YouTuber Christopher Jones posted a video of a jump he took in November that was interrupted by a debilitating seizure mid-free fall. Yikes. Let’s just let Jones describe it:
“Possibly the scariest moment of my life,” he writes. “While doing stage five of my Accelerated Free Fall program I have a near death experience. At around 9,000 feet 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 4,000 feet. I become conscious at 3,000 feet and land safely back to the ground.”
So, who wants to go skydiving?
