One of the things that makes skydiving so thrilling is its risky nature, and this ladies and gentlemen, is an example of the risk. When a skydiving instructor and his passenger leap from a plane in Zimbabwe, things take a terrifying turn. Their line gets caught on the airplane's landing gear, leaving them stuck hanging upside down as the plane continues to fly through the sky. After a nearly nine-minute struggle that has us on the edge of our seats, the instructor finally manages to cut them free — with the entire incident captured on camera.
