Friday Freakout: Skydiver Survives Double Malfunction Crash

Posted by Andrew R.

Mike Holmes survived a nasty double malfunction at Taupo Tandem Skydiving in New Zealand, making a nauseating thud as he hit the ground at 70+ MPH. His intense footage aired on the Today Show shortly after his accident in December 2006. I’m not sure that luckily landing in a plump patch of blackberry bushes helped Mike survive this high speed crash (maybe it did?), but I bet he eats blackberries every day for breakfast; wouldn’t you?
