How Lucky is This Guy?!


Working as a parachuting camera man, James Boole was on his last jump of the day — 6,000 above a mountain in a remote part of Russia — that very nearly turned into the last jump of his life. Boole’s fellow jumper, who he was filming, was supposed to signal to Boole when to pull his chute, except the signal never came. With a broad side of a giant mountain rapidly approaching, Boole at the last instant pulled his ripcord, narrowly saving his life. His chute opened practically as he hit the mountain, but it jerked him backwards enough, landing him on his back, and preventing more catastrophic injury. Even still, Boole was left with a broken back, ribs and teeth, and coughing up blood, while still stuck on the side of a snowy mountain in Russia. Amazingly, he was rescued, brought to St. Petersburg and is in excellent shape and going about his recovery. Don’t try this at home.

My question is where is Boole’s footage that he was shooting, because I want to see it. Also, I want to go skydiving.
