Man Survives Seizure While Skydiving (Video)

Christopher Jones experienced a seizure and was unconscious for 30 seconds while skydiving in Australia on Nov. 14, 2014.

The incident happened at around 9,000 feet (of a 12,000 jump) and was recorded by a camera attached to skydiving instructor Sheldon McFarlane, noted NBC News.

Jones uploaded the video (below) on YouTube yesterday, and it already has more than 4 million views.

Jones wrote on his YouTube page:

"Possibly the scariest moment of my life. On the 14th of November 2014 while doing stage five of my Accelerated Free Fall program I have a near death experience. At around 9000ft I have a seizure while attempting a left hand turn. 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 back to the ground.”
