Terrifying Moment Paratrooper is Catapulted from Plane when Chute Opens Accidentally

A video that is quickly collecting views on YouTube shows a U.S. paratrooper accidentally getting sucked out of a plane when his reserve chute opened.

The clip was filmed via a cellphone, as those jumping with him wanted to capture the moment he jumped from the plane. But their moment was ruined when they were looking down, trying to locate a good jump area.

Without warning, the man is catapulted out of the C-130 Hercules open ramp and is carried into the sky by his parachute.

The man is believed to be from Kentucky's Fifth Special Forces Group, and landed safely, 30 miles from their intended drop zone.

It is not known where the video was filmed or who filmed it.
