A British soldier training in California has survived a 15,000ft parachute plunge that culminated with him crashing through the roof of someone's home.
Neighbours on the street in Atascadero, San Luis Obispo County, reported seeing the parachutist spiraling through the air before falling straight through the property's roof.
The soldier, who has not been named, was part of a group participating in an exercise at the Camp Roberts training facility in central California.
Local police confirmed the accident and said the soldier's parachute had failed to deploy.
"The parachutist was conscious but stunned with complaints of pain but no visible serious injuries," Atascadero police department said in a statement.
"The occupants of the residence were not home at the time and therefore were uninjured."
This is absolutely insane.
The dude jumped from FIFTEEN THOUSAND FEET, his parachute did not deploy, he smashed straight through someone's roof and ended up inside their house, and not only did he SURVIVE, but he had only MINOR INJURIES.
Who survives a 15,000-foot fall? What an absolute miracle. This guy's great-grandchildren will tell this story.
