Skydiver Hits Truck, Loses Arm (GRAPHIC)

Posted by Andrew Revesz

In the words of Tommy Ferguson, “Awww, crap! That sucks.” I’m not sure WTF this truck/trailer was doing parked on the landing area, but target fixation got the best of Tommy on a downwind landing and he managed to hit the one object in an open desert that could — and did — mess him up really badly. You have to watch out for those trailers… they’ll come out of nowhere! All jokes aside, every skydiver makes mistakes. But unfortunately for Tommy, he wasn’t able to escape this mistake without a life-changing injury; his arm was amputated between the shoulder and elbow due to nerve damage.
