Despite all of the modern safety standards that apply to skydiving, it’s still incredibly dangerous. Even if you double and triple check everything, something might still go wrong.
What follows is POV footage of something going terribly wrong during a jump over the Russian village of Nikolskoye. The man in the footage, known only as 36-year-old Vladimir K. experienced parachute difficulties after leaving the plane and died upon impact with the ground.
The footage does not include the moment of impact, but it is still pretty harrowing. Watch it at your own risk.
