Just because stuntman Gary Connery jumped out of a helicopter last week and safely landed without a parachute doesn’t mean that everyone’s ready for the extreme skydiving challenge.
An 80-year-old grandma, who was looking for a little excitement for her birthday, decided to go skydiving. Unfortunately, the woman got a little more excitement than she was hoping for.
A video popped up on Youtube earlier this week showing the elderly lady getting ready for her first skydiving attempt.
She’s heads up in the plane with the instructor, strapped together in a tandem harness, but things go wrong as soon as they jump.
The woman nearly falls completely out of the harness.
Luckily, the instructor was able to keep hold of the woman as they slowly made their descent.
Here’s the description from Youtube:
“Luckily this tandem instructor’s negligence ends without casualty. This 80 year-old grandma does a tandem skydive for her birthday and nearly falls out of the harness because it’s not properly adjusted prior to exit. Certainly not your typical tandem jump, but WOW is this scary. Barf.”
What makes the video worse is that you can definitely see the woman change her mind up in the air. She fights to stay on board but the instructor pushes her out of the plane.
Here’s the video.
