Skydiver Knocked Unconscious In Freefall

End of the weekend 12 way tracking dive. I was above, off right to the rabbit and starting to close down and in when a fellow jumper hit the back of my head in freefall at very high speed. They landed fine with a small cut and imprint of the camera button from the back of my helmet – and one very sore leg!

I was completely knocked out and started regaining conciousness shortly after 2 other friends have a hold of me. Later on I did make it to A&E where I was checked over with warnings of further post concussion symptoms.

Big thanks to the individuals who helped and quick decisions.

N.B. Everyone’s kit on that jump contained an AAD (Automatic Activation Device) and everyone landed safe.
