I never really had any desire to go skydiving, but this video might just put the icing on the cake for me to never try it. I’m sure this is a pretty rare occurrence, but it’s enough for me to say “Oh hell no” to jumping out of a plane attached to another human being.
It’s unclear exactly how it happened from the video, but this tandem skydiving team became stuck on the plane’s landing gear immediately after jumping. The instructor and pilot fight for almost 9 minutes until they’re finally able to free the pair.
You can skip ahead to the 8:15 mark in the video to see when they finally break free, but I encourage you watch the whole video if you’re up for it!
“Occurred on March 25, 2018 / Zimbabwe “A parachutist-instructor fought for the lives of himself and the tandem passenger and the pilot for 9 minutes. In parachuting, this is not the first time that a pair of skydivers jumping in tandem hangs under an airplane, catching on to it, but for the first time they managed to survive.” Credit: IGemail@example.com”
