For anyone who has ever been or even dreamed of skydiving, the idea that perhaps you could fall out of your harness and free fall to the ground is nothing shy of a nightmare. For one 80-year-old woman this nightmare became a reality and it was all caught on video.
As she left the plane she began falling out of her harness in a tandem jump with an instructor who bravely held on the woman below him. The jump was something she had wanted to do for over a decade and decided to follow through on her eightieth birthday. While it seems nearly impossible to believe, the instructor was able to continue holding on to the woman until the pair reached the ground safely. The video of the horrific scene has been hitting the web since Friday.
