It was the fifth dive for Christopher Jones. He was an advanced enough skydiver that he was allowed to jump out of the plane alone, without a tandem partner. At around 9,000 feet above Western Australia, something went terribly wrong. Jones had a seizure while quickly, and uncontrollably descending.
Thanks to Yahoo where I first saw the story, CNN for providing additional details about the story, Huffington Post for providing another perspective about the story, and YouTube for hosting the video I decided to use. I also appreciate the people who, directly or indirectly, made it possible for me to include the picture, video, and text I used in this post.
The video I watched that I found most informative can be viewed here.
