This is what someone having a seizure while skydiving looks like

This is a must watch.

 

Videos of skydivers being rescued mid-drop have a tendency to go viral. However, never before has there been a rescue of a skydiver who had a seizure at 9000 feet.

The amazing stunt was uploaded to YouTube by user Nomadic Adrenaline and has been viewed over 4 million times since being uploaded on March 1.

Nomadic called it, “possibly the scariest moment of my life.”

 

 "On the 14th of November 2014 while doing stage five of my Accelerated Free Fall program I have a near death experience. 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,” Nomadic wrote in the video description.

The video itself was most likely filmed via the jumpmaster's head camera.

Really disappointed that this is what the donated money is going towards.
Why doesn’t the The Rebel start a daily podcast instead of doing something like this?

As for the seizure, yawn. Seen one seizure, seen them all, and as seizures go, this one is boring, as is the rescue, despite how exciting it must have been for those involved.

Hey, guys, give therebel.media a break. It’s only week two. I’d like to see you do better. Once they get up, they’ll do interviews and documentaries and other unique features. In the meantime, they are managing to upload an impressive amount of original material.

you know i didn’t, Milan. and i didn’t suggest so. i am merely lamenting that despite the cash infusion, Therebel.media is resorting to the tired methods of your run of the mill buzzfeed, upworthy, or what have you.

You donated $150K yourself there, John?
