A helmet camera captured the dramatic rescue of a skydiver who lost consciousness mid-freefall.

Christopher Jones, 22, suffered a seizure halfway through his November dive over Western Australia, according to the Australian Broadcast Corporation.

It's clear something has gone awry as the video shows Jones begin to shake and roll onto his back while at 9,000 feet in the air.

The skydive instructor, who wore the helmet cam, made several attempts to grab Jones and pull the ripcord. He finally reached the unconscious man and released his parachute.

Jones said he came to at about 3,000 feet and safely landed on the ground.

Jones uploaded the video to YouTube on Sunday with a caption that calls the incident “possibly the scariest moment of my life.”

The video has received upwards of 4 million views. Click here to watch for yourself.
