This is intense.
Just seconds after jumping out of the plane, this skydive training session took a dangerous turn.
The student skydiver - identified only as Eugene S. - started spinning as he fell to the earth.
Unable to stop the so-called 'death spin' and right himself into the ground-facing position needed to deploy his parachute, his instructors tried for several (agonizingly long) seconds to get him under control.
Eventually, one was able to grab hold of him and release his chute.
All three are reported to have landed safely.
