At 2,500 feet, my jump partner flairs his canopy causing it slow down rapidly. I entangle with it and he cuts away. Unable to fly a ball of nylon effectively, I impact a cornfield breaking my pelvis, back and neck causing instant paralysis. As I lay waiting for help, spinal shock begins to set in paralyzing my diaphragm and breathing on my own becomes impossible. Rescue breathing is performed as I lose consciousness. Paramedics arrive and I'm med-flighted to UW Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin where I awake days later after surgery and begin life as a quadriplegic. It's taken me four and a half years to be able to watch this video.
Edit: I did deploy my reseve; it's the blue ball of nylon tangled in my lines. Edit #2: The creepy frames at 3:31 were caused when the write head on my DV camcorder skipped from the impact preserving the previous recording that I was taping over. The image is of the ex-gf and myself in the basement of our old house. It is not a sex tape; guys do not tape over sex tapes.
