Skydiver Lives After Parachute Doesn’t Open

While technically this has nothing to do with Gadgets I post on the premise that a better gadget might have kept this from happening. Whatever. It’s amazing nonetheless. Skydiver Michael Homes survives after both his parachutes fail to properly open. Both his own helmet camera and that of his partner filmed the entire accident. The dude landed in a blackberry bush and survived. Pretty amazing video. Nothing to gross or graphic, but if you’ve got a good imagination, his final seconds before hitting the ground might freak you out. Michael Homes is one lucky dude. If you’re up the entire (long video) hit this. The highlight footage from MSNBC is really all you need though.
