Skydiver saved by trainer after seizure during dive
A SKYDIVER has recalled the 'scariest moment of his life' in which he had a seizure mid-dive.
The diver known only as Christopher posted the helmet-mounted camera footage to his YouTube channel yesterday, where it has since had more than 1 million views.
"While doing stage five of my Accelerated Free Fall program I have a near death experience," he wrote.
Christopher made the jump last November in Western Australia over Pinjarra.
"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."
