Woman survives parachute failure

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"A woman is lucky to be alive after she went skydiving this weekend and her parachute failed, causing her to freefall more than 5,000 feet to the ground.

"The incident, which happened on Saturday in Canada, was witnessed by several bystanders, who watched in fear and disbelief as the woman, whose name has not been released, plummeted through the air."

That would be horrifying. I skydived few years ago, went to an altitude of about 15,000 feet. The jump itself wasn't that scary. I would say the most terrifying part was when the instructor pulled the string & we floated for like 10 min while feet dangled above the earth. I couldn't look down, it was crazy

Jeeze, thankfully she survived, but she still going to be suffering physically and mentally for a while.

Hope she recovers well and stays on terra firma.
