Crap. I was almost talked into doing Boogie IV in February and then a "friend" showed me this.
From source: " In this video I am the instructor. The camera is on the left side of my head. The points of contact were the top of my head and his ribs. I heard my neck break and, I was paralyzed instantly. The legs you see flopping around are mine. My emergency parachute opened around 700'. I was fully conscious until hitting the ground."
I was trying to work out what happened. Assuming no part of the video has been edited out the two jumpers seem well apart when "impact" occurs. I wonder what happened to the guy afterwards - I've known people make full recoveries from a broken neck. Mind you, Murphy was in good form that day in arranging for the out of control full-drive landing to be on the hard runway. Horrific.

I agree with TQ, Otter! I thought someone cancelled next year's Boogie! It reminded me of the video we saw of Walter skydiving at the last Boogie. Will someone put it up on YouTube? Please? I did a search and managed to find someone's video of their dive at 2007's boogie. It looks awesome. Someone might be able to talk me into jumping next year.
