Skydiving Incident

You might have seen this on tv news earlier this week. It's footage of a skydiver in New Zealand who survived a 12,00ft fall with some major parachute problems.

The guy landed in a patch of blackberry bushes and lived to tell the tale. He also had a camera on his helmet, so you can experience the whole thing almost as he did, but not quite.

Quote of the week would have to go to his skydiving companion after jumping out of the plane behind him, finding him alive, and videoing the whole thing.

"Are you okay bro."


"Does it hurt anyway"


You won't find the video on YouTube. It was on YouTube, but now you'll find this message there in its place:

This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Associated Newspapers Limited

You'll find the video here instead. At least the guy must have made some money out of the ordeal. Fair enough!
