CAPE TOWN - A Cape Town skydiver has had a lucky escape.
Luke Godfrey was on a routine jump over Roberson in the Western Cape with two experienced skydivers when a strong wind slammed into him, twisting the lines of his parachute.
His helmet with a camera mount was ripped off his head. It carried on filming, showing just what could have happened to him.
The footage on the camera survived the one-and-half kilometre freefall. Godfrey retrieved the camera, but only after negotiations with some locals who found the equipment.
