Skydiver misses mountain by only a few meters - luckily has another pair or pants to change into

Skydiver misses mountain by a few meters, probably needed a change of pants

Well, this video is quite interesting indeed. It has been on YouTube for a while but I have only just come across it and normally I wouldn't post something un-tech-related like this, but it's just so awesome to see how close he came to death and survived!

A bunch of people dive out of a plane, mis-judge where they are (above mountains) that look far away until you see the camera pan up and he sees the others pulling their parachutes, he looks down and most likely squeals like a little girl inside, pulls his chute and barely, just barely, misses the mountain and slides down into the ground.

Amazing footage and I couldn't be paid any form of money to do that.
