Skydiver Knocked Out By Nearly Fatal Collision, Saved By Vigil

Andrew ReveszBy Andrew Revesz

What was intended to be an angle jump turned into a zoo dive on exit and the group breaks apart quickly. One of the lagging jumpers tries to catch the leader, resulting in a nearly fatal collision that knocks Lucho out cold. Luckily his Vigil worked as advertised and saved his life. He has fully recovered now from the rough reserve landing, but more importantly, hes alive! This is a great reminder to wear an AAD and know the people and their skill level — youre jumping with.
