Skydiver Gerardo Flores Passes Out At 13,000 Feet; Terrifying Fall Caught On Camera (VIDEO)

“So sad to see The Huffington Post write an article with this clown and then cite Felix Baumgartner. They may have been worried about Felix passing out because he was jumping from twenty-four miles up, not two and half miles! At least they do go on to state how rare skydiving deaths are in the grand scheme and just an FYI...It is far more dangerous for you to drive a car than go skydiving, unless perhaps you're Gerardo who took far too many risks with his own life and should be paying the price for his own stupidity instead of blaming the industry and the dropzone. Considering his negligence, I sure wouldn't want to be on the road with him. There are so many issues with this story and I would love to see these 'news' outlets actually do some research first and discover that this jump was not nearly as 'terrifying' as all these reporters are making it out to be.”

“A fifteen minute flight in a CESSNA with one passenger would take you over 10,000ft. Larry's exit altitude was 2,000ft.”
