This Russian Tourist Went Paragliding for the First Time. Then His Chute Ripped…

These two are very, very lucky to be alive...

This must be the most terrifying thing that could ever happen to you as a paraglider.

Misha, a Russian tourist, had signed himself up for a tandem jump – probably anticipating nothing more extreme than the sensation of losing his stomach. Instead, he nearly lost his life.

Midway through a loop-the-loop the parachute supporting both him and his instructor ripped in two.

Only the quick reactions of his partner, who just managed to deploy the safety chutes in time, saved the pair from death.
