Video released by NBC News shows the horrifying collision between two planes carrying skydivers over northwest Wisconsin on Saturday. Cameras mounted on the skydivers' helmets give a first-person view of the collision and the incident's miraculous ending.
Despite the fall from 12,000 feet, none of the nine skydivers or two pilots sustained serious injuries, according to an Associated Press report. All of the skydivers were able to deploy their parachutes and one of the pilots was able to use an emergency parachute. The other pilot was able pull out of dive and safely land his aircraft, reports NBC.
The video, compiled from several of the skydivers' helmet cameras, gives an incredible perspective of the harrowing event: the collision as skydivers were about to jump; the second plane erupting in flames; a skydiver clinging to a wing of the first plane before letting go; planes and people careening toward earth; and finally parachutes being released and landings being made.
According to NBC News' report, the Federal Aviation Administration has not determined a cause of the incident. One of the passengers who captured the event told NBC News that "the outcome for us was as good as it could be."
