JANDAKOT, AUSTRALIA – Terrifying video shows the moment a skydiving instructor saved a man who claims to have suffered a seizure mid-jump.

The dramatic rescue started at 9,000 feet in the air.

Nomadic Adrenaline posted the following description with the video:

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.
