This is the terrifying moment a skydiver was left plummeting 12,500ft to the ground after he was knocked out in a skydiving accident. 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. The blow knocked him out and sent him hurtling towards the ground uncontrollably. Luckily two other skydivers noticed something was wrong and chased after their unconscious colleague. After realising he was unresponsive the two men managed to roll James into a more stable position and deploy his parachute for a safe landing. It wasn't until James was under the canopy that he began to regain consciousness, he landed safely on the ground with no memory of the drama that had unfolded seconds earlier.
Skydiving has such a great community and I love how we look out for each other. So happy he's ok! Blue Skies........
I enjoyed the video, it shows just how much people in this sport care for one another. I'm glad he is ok, And Ty to the group that insured his safety.
I would NOT want to remember this either @happyrock he is so lucky!
That's terrifying!!! Lucky fo rhim they noticed quickly, and lucky that he has no memory of it to be honest....I wouldn't want to have to actually remember something so terrifying, the knowledge it happened would be scary enough.
