LONDON: -- Student skydiver Eugene S. was recently having a training session when he spun from the standard ground-facing position and was sent into a dangerous ‘death-spin’.

Skydiving student saved from death spin by instructors

His instructors spend several seconds (which is quite a long time when you a hurtling towards earth) trying to get him under control, before one of them manages to get hold of him and release his parachute.

Who would have thought that jumping out of a plane 30,000ft in the air with nothing but a small piece of plastic to save you could be dangerous?

In spite of these risks, people still enjoy skydiving, even though videos like this clearly demonstrate how easily things can go very wrong.

All three reportedly landed safely, however there is no information on whether or not Eugene will be continuing his skydiving training
