Video: Skydiver Caught, Dragged By Plane
Prepare to be thankful you’re on solid ground.
We all know a person with “jump out of a perfectly good plane” as a check-off from their life goals bucket list. While it’s indeed a scary venture to the average flightless mammal, skydiving also tends to be one of those “crazy ideas” that is encouraged by friends and loved ones because, really, how dangerous can it be?
Well, Fernando Gava has an idea about that.
After getting snagged on the exit stair of the plane he was leaping from in Peru, he was dragged through the skies at 10,000 feet—upside down—for nearly half an hour. A veteran jumper with over a thousand leaps of faith under his belt, the steely Gava cut himself free with a knife and managed to escape unscathed, save for a small cut on his hand, after which he nonchalantly parachuted to the ground.
After which we imagine he gave it a nice big kiss.
