JANDAKOT, AUSTRALIA — A man on YouTube recently claimed to have a near-death experience so terrifying, you’d have to see it to believe it.

A recent viral video appears to show the dramatic rescue of a man named Christopher, who claims to have been suffering from a seizure during a 12,000-foot drop.

The video was uploaded by user Nomadic Adrenaline Sunday, and by Sunday evening it already had more than a million views.

“Possibly the scariest moment of my life,” the user wrote in the video’s caption. “At around 9000ft I have a seizure while attempting a left hand turn. I then spend the next 30 seconds in free fall unconscious. Thankfully my jumpmaster manages to pull my ripcord at around 4000ft.”

The video was also featured on Reddit and has thousands of comments.
