Fernando Gava's harrowing ordeal was captured by his friend, Maurice Mathey, who later posted it to Vimeo.

Mathey is a skydiver himself and works as an instructor on the weekends.


Finally, Gava was able to cut himself free with a knife. Mathey said that most experienced skydivers carry such a tool with them for emergencies such as these.

"It was very lucky that the plane had just filled up the tanks with fuel before taking off so that he had enough time to cut his jumpsuit away," he said.
