Skydiver escapes 4,500 ft fall with minor injuries!September 2nd, 2008 - 5:51 pm ICT by ANI
London , Sep 2 (ANI): Jamie Robertson, a 57-year-old skydiver, dazed all when he incredibly escaped a 4,500 ft fall with only minor injuries.
The onlookers were dumfounded when they witnessed Robertsons 4,500 ft fall and saw him escape the accident with minor injuries.
Eleven fellow skydivers watched helplessly when Robertsons parachute was blown against the tail of a plane, but as luck had it, the impact triggered a reserve parachute and he slumped in his harness, floated to the ground.
Robertson, a father of two, fell unconscious on the ground and was rushed to hospital with no memory of his fall.
I am not sure if I jumped slightly too high, but the wind whacked me into the tail, The Sun quoted Robertson, as saying.
Luckily, I hit it so hard that my reserve chute opened, which is very unusual, he said.
I cant believe how lucky I am to have got down safely the doctors were amazed, its a miracle that I survived, he added.
The mishap has not made the Robertson reluctant about jumping.
Im definitely going to carry on jumping he said. (ANI)
