(NBC) – As if skydiving isn’t scary enough, one Australian man is lucky to be alive after a jump went horribly wrong.
A man named Christopher posted the video above on YouTube, said to be shot last November.
While taking part in a jump 12-thousand feet in the sky, Christopher said he suffered a stroke while attempting a left-hand turn at nine-thousand feet. He says he spent the next 30 seconds in free fall totally unconscious.
Luckily for Christopher, his jumpmaster realized something was wrong and took action. After a failed attempt to reach Christopher, the jumpmaster finally was able to grab hold of him, pulling his ripcord around four-thousand feet.
Christopher says he regained consciousness at around three-thousand feet and was able to land safely on the ground.
