Freaky Friday-Skydiver Falls 6,000 Ft Survives

According to AOL news, a skydiver was filming another skydiver for a television documentary and was supposed to be signaled by the other diver when it was time to pull the chute. There was a mix-up somehow and he ended up pulling the chute with only seconds to spare.

The Sky diver, James Poole, ended up crashing into the side of a snowy, rocky, mountainside in Russia. After he landed he was alive but, critically injured. He thought for a moment that he might want to leave a few last words with someone but, amazingly he survived. Boole suffered injuries to his spine, ribs, teeth, and lungs.

Boole was treated at a Moscow hospital and then transported back home to Britain.
