BANGKOK, Feb. 9 (UPI) -- A Thailand skydiving instructor shared video of the plane he left on a tandem jump going into a dive and nearly striking him and the woman skydiving with him.
Forest Pullman, an instructor with the Thai Sky Adventure Company in Bangkok, said he and the woman he was strapped to for the tandem jump had only been in the air a few seconds when the plane they left appeared to go into a nosedive and clipped their drogue chute.
Pullman was able to free the chute and get the jump back under control, the video shows.
"The pilot dove the airplane 180 degrees right at me and my tandem passenger. How we got so lucky?!?! Not sure," Pullman wrote in the video's description on YouTube.
The reason for the plane's dive was unclear Monday.
Pullman said the video was shot Oct. 19 of last year, but was uploaded to YouTube Friday.
