Instructor Saves Skydiver Having Seizure While Falling

A 22-year-old Australian man Christopher Jones, suffered a seizure during a skydiving training course in November, and his instructor -- who had to make two attempts to deploy the unconscious Jones' parachute caught the rescue on video.

During the skydive in the video above, the fun jump quickly turned scary when instructor Sheldon McFarlane noticed Jones roll onto his back. The video shows McFarlane trying to approach Jones to grab his ripcord, but he fails, and Jones plummets further toward the earth. On McFarlane's second try, he successfully deploys the chute.
