    Skydivers amazing 12000 ft fall - watch the video

    It shows him plummeting 12,000ft to earth after both his parachutes failed, saying goodbye to the world... and hitting the ground with a sickening thud at 80mph. Michael's friend, who jumped from the same plane, also filmed the whole event. He found his pal bleeding and unconscious - but alive.
    Now watch the incredible footage...

    I saw this on the ITN news last night and in the end I was dizzy from them showing it again & again. They must have shown it about 4 times!! I said to the missus it was like watching those American cop shows where they show the car hitting the barrier 10 times in case you missed it the first time. There should be a law against repeat showing... if you miss it the first time....tuff.

    Oh yea....injuries - one broken ankle and a collapsed lung :oops:

    Funny how the story changes...

    Unless of course my one was a different sky diver?

    Mine hit the ground at 100mph from 15,000ft and yet only came away with the exact same injuries :thinking:

    Read this site if you want all sorts of free-fall stories plus the physics explanation on why surviving isn't *that* ridiculous (basically you hit terminal velocity after about 1200 feet so falling from 12000 or 1200 is no different. terminal velocity for an average human is around 120mph).
