Before going skydiving, you best pray that everyone involved knows exactly what they are doing, otherwise you might find yourself in a life or death situation much like these two skydivers who were almost hit and sliced in half by the plane they jumped from.
Fortunately, it turned out to be a close with no injuries or loss of life because of instructor Forest Pullman’s quick thinking…
Forest explained the precarious situation:
After an uneventful exit…. The pilot dove the airplane 180 degrees right at me and my tandem passenger. how we got so lucky?!?! Not sure.
I have never heard of this happening. After some research and talking to friends about it I now know of two other incidents like this. One is on you tube and he did not get as lucky as we did.
While I am glad they landed in one piece, the incident makes me have second thoughts about skydiving. What about you?
