It seemed like an ordinary skydiving day for Christopher Jones, who was midway through a class. But what he did not expect was to lose consciousness midair.

The first attempt to grab the seizing diver was unsuccessful

The guy who bravely chased after the free-falling Jones is jumpmaster Sheldon McFarlane. But he refused to take credit, saying he was never worried that Jones would hit the ground without a parachute.

Successful rescue at 4,000 ft

If he was hadnt been able to manually pull the rip cord, the computer chip inside the suit would have automatically fired the chute at a preset altitude. Still, he refused to not do anything: I thought it would be better to get him under parachute earlier than later.

Jones has not had a seizure for the past 4 years and his treating specialist cleared him to take skydiving lessons. But after the incident, he has to find another hobby.

At around 9000ft I have a seizure while attempting a left hand turn, he said, I then spend the next 30 seconds in free fall unconscious. Thankfully my jumpmaster manages to pull my ripcord at around 4000ft. I become conscious at 3000 ft and land safely.
