BANGKOK — Skydiving is supposed to be a thrill. But two daredevils recently had a close call they likely won’t want to repeat.
In a video posted last week, experienced skydiver Forrest Pullman is shown performing a tandem dive with a female in Thailand. They exit the plane safely and everything seems to be going fine.
Until Pullman looks up and sees the plane banking straight at them. The craft physically touches Pullman’s gear on the way by, an event that could easily have catastrophic consequences.
“I have never heard of this happening,” Pullman writes. “After some research and talking to friends about it I now know of two other incidents like this. One is on YouTube and he did not get as lucky as we did.”
