Skydiver Has A Seizure In Mid Air

Having a seizure isn’t cool but even worse is having one at 9,000ft. This jump master noticed Christopher seizing on the way down and with quick thinking helped open his chute.

From Christopher’s description:

Possibly the scariest moment of my life. On the 14th of November 2014 while doing stage five of my Accelerated Free Fall program I have a near death experience. At around 9000ft 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 4000ft. I become conscious at 3000 ft and land safely back to the ground.

Here’s a screen shot of the moment the chute opened:
