Dodge a bullet, jump back in front of the gun

So after his chute fouled and his reserve wouldn't deploy, the guy plummeted into the earth after waving goodbye to his helmet cam and saying "I'm dead".

But he survived, and got back in a plane after he recovered and leaped again.

The interview includes some of his footage as well as his buddy's footage.

This is a short CNN video story about it:

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)
