Actual Video Footage Of Skydivers As Their Plane Collides/Explodes Into Another Plane Filled With Skydivers
Skydiving is possibly the most extreme sport on Earth. In fact, each year about 30 people die parachuting in the U.S. alone. Then there's this. A Cessna carrying six people grazed into another Cessna carrying five people, causing one of the planes to ignite, which prompted everyone inside to jump out -- in what may be the first time skydiving has ever been a pragmatic decision.
One plane was destroyed, the other landed safely with some damage to its propeller. All 11 people survived, as well as this footage, which acted as a reward for the skydivers, who now need a new plane.
[NY Daily News] NBC News secured the footage Monday, paying the skydivers $100,000 for the rights to air the video and lock them into exclusive, televised interviews on the “Today” show, “Nightly News” and an upcoming episode of “Dateline.”
