-- -- function happened high above the earth.
Causing demand to black out while plummeting to the ground from a height of thirteen thousand feet.
-- Gallagher is live in Los Angeles I'm nervous even thinking about it -- it.
Yet the -- -- -- -- Arnold Flores and he'd been skydiving for two years and this was his thirtieth.
Freefall he decided to document the whole thing with a go pro video camera right so he.
Jumps out of the plane and he's exhilarated you can see that he's very excited when he begins this freefall.
And he's at thirteen thousand feet right.
You can hear screaming.
And then he suddenly gets a jolt.
And the parachute opened up and you can hear and later kind of talking out loud thinking to himself if you will that he's in trouble listen to this.
All but not -- Not -- I didn't mean London and I.
The good -- and I'm.
Yeah played that he -- know what to do -- -- -- not supposed to deploy above 6000 feet because the air is -- it's awfully cold and it's unclear the -- it will open all the -- well.
He considers may be.
Jump in the first parachute used in the back up but instead for some reason that is still unknown he blacks out.
And for twenty minutes he falls unconscious and somehow amazingly lands inside the drop zone.
Well he remained unconscious for two more weeks right.
Two more weeks he broke some reds had a few other minor bumps and bruises but came out of this okay the FAA investigated the whole thing.
And they found it was a critical velcro strap on the parachute that caused it to deploy there was also some kind of malfunctioned and lines in there this got pairs of landing by the way.
He lands unconscious they finally -- get into the hospital the skydiving school disputes with the FAA says they blame it on her rural Flores saying.
He didn't have the experience to do that job.
-- in the -- people just stay on the ground okay that would solve a lot of problems.
Thanks and in the yard.
