Raw video: Near deadly skydive (4:45)

New York Daily News/NDNJanuary 30, 2014 


Skydiver James Lee was wearing a helmet-mounted camera that captured his jump. Good thing because he was unconscious for much of the time. He was knocked out when a jump buddy's leg hit his head as they were leaving their aircraft at 12,500 feet. Friends noticed something was wrong and were able to deploy his chute for him. He regained consciousness before touch down.
