Amazing Video: Skydiver Has Seizure in Midair, Gets Rescued

(Video Link)

Your must-see video of the day is this gripping shot of a man barely escaping death because he was unable to open his parachute.

Christopher Jones of Perth, Australia has epilepsy. The debilitating effects of a grand mal seizure hit him at the worst possible moment: while he was skydiving. He jumped at 12,000 feet. At about 9,000 feet, the seizure started.

At the 1:10 mark in the video, it becomes apparent to the jumpmaster that something was terribly wrong. He made his way over to Jones and pulled his ripcord at 4,000 feet. Jones regained consciousness before landing safely on the ground.
