|Hand me a beer bro, I am about to do this!|
Moments after Lee jumped from the plane he collided with another skydiver and was knocked completely unconscious. Not a good look for someone whose rapid descent to earth relies on their ability to stay awake long enough to pull a small nylon cord.
As Lee hurtled to the ground from 12,500 feet while knocked out, his colleagues noticed something was wrong. Like the fact that he was falling like a rock. They acted quick and stabilized his body, then pulled his chute.
Lee awoke as he was gently floating to the ground, where he landed with only minor head and neck injuries, and assumedly an upcoming large bar tab. Lee had no recollection of what went down, or how close he had come to doing a Wile E. Coyote impression on the dirt.
Lee is unperturbed by his brush with death however. As a man who has made over 1000 jumps (see, told you) he isn't ready to give up yet. Perhaps though, he should still keep his same diving buddies. Lee to The Telegraph:
"It hasn't put me off at all. I have not jumped too much lately because of the weather but will be back in the sport this season."
Good quote, I would have gone with, "Thank you for saving me. Again, thanks for saving me. Really, that was pretty cool."
