Helmet Camera Captures Unconscious Skydiver’s Dramatic Mid-Air Rescue

Last July, 25-year-old James Lee, an experience skydiver from Gloucestershire, England, went skydiving with a few of his friends. At 15 seconds into the video Lee is hit by another skydiver and knocked unconscious at 12,500 feet. Lee’s friends notice something is not right, check on him, place him in a stable position, then deploy his chute. Lee regained consciousness moments before landing and had no memory of the accident. The dramatic mid-air rescue was caught on Lee’s helmet camera and has been seen more than 2.5 million times in a week.
