Man suffers an epileptic seizure while skydiving

Many of us have things we would like to do once in our lifetime, things like getting in an aircraft at some 2.000 metres high and skydive with a parachute. This is what the young Australian Christopher Jones aged 22 did. However a few moments after jumping into a void he suffered an epileptic seizure which left him unconscious.

Fortunately, he managed to land safe and sound after his teacher and flight instructor pulled the cord that enabled the opening of his parachute. Once on land, it appeared that the young man had passed medical examinations for such extreme sport. However, the young man suffered from a diagnosed epilepsy, although he spent more than 4 years without experiencing any similar attack.
