Watch This Skydiver Fall 8,000 Feet Without a Parachute — and Survive

I’m not a skydiver, and I doubt I ever will be. But people who do parachute from thousands of feet up in the sky have my respect. It’s scary stuff. You hear about skydivers falling to earth without a parachute to meet with terrible injuries or death. But this 51-year old dentist not only managed to survive his freefall to earth, he walked away with no more than a few bruises! Chalk it up to clean living, I suppose.

Watch the amazing news story, and the video footage here:

I love the ‘Talladega Nights‘ movie reference he adds at the end. Does watching this story change your mind either way about skydiving? Personally, it puts me a couple more steps away from a parachute.
