When the Australian thrill-seeker jumped out of a plane at 14,000 feet in August 2013, the first few moments were totally exhilarating. They may even have been the most exciting seconds of his young life so far. But the exhilaration soon turned into rising consternation as he continued his fall and realized something that was terribly wrong. All at once, it appeared as if his worst nightmare was coming true.
In 2012 local man Brad Guy was working as a digital editor for a radio station in the city of Melbourne, Australia, when he turned 21. To mark the momentous occasion in style some of his friends and family clubbed together to buy him an activity gift. They hoped to give Guy an experience he would never forget. As it turns out, that is exactly what the birthday present donators’ money bought.
Guy was known to his loved ones as a bit of a daredevil. So it probably came as no surprise to the birthday boy when he was presented with a voucher for a tandem skydive. As a result, one year later, Guy found himself at an airstrip in the nearby Yarra Valley, psychologically preparing himself to be hurled out of a moving plane.
