Watch The Terrifying Moment A Skydiver Gets Trousers Caught On A Plane


An experienced skydiver had the fright of his life recently after a jump from a plane went horrifically wrong.

Fernando Gava from Peru has jumped from planes hundreds of times however his last attempt left him stuck on the planes steps and dangling for half an hour.

His harrowing ordeal was captured by his friend, Maurice Mathey, who later posted the 2 minute clip on to Vimeo.

Watch it here:

Mathey explained that his friend in the video usually works with computers however is an experience sky diver than works as a daring instructor on the weekends.

However this time was different as when Gava jumped, his trouser leg became attached to the planes steps leaving him dangling upside down for around 30 minutes.

Gava was eventually able to cut himself free with a knife which most instructors carry just in case of emergencies like this one.

Mathey said: It was very lucky that the plane had just filled up the tanks with fuel before taking off so that he had enough time to cut his jumpsuit away,

Gava was then able to deploy his parachute and land safely and luckily only coming away from the incident with a cut hand from the knife.
