Transcript for Skydiver Suffers Seizure
but tonight they're offering a $50,000 reward for safe return. And an unconscious sky diver falling. Clayton Sandell has the story. Reporter: Jumping from a perfectly good airplane Christopher Jones begins a perfectly good freefall 12,000 feet above western Australia. But seconds later he suffers a midair epileptic seizure. He started going into the de-arch position, almost like a fetal position, rolled over onto his back and started spinning. Reporter: The unconscious 27-year old plummets to 4,000 feet only 22 seconds from hitting the ground. That's when his instructor swoops in. I was just glad to get to him stop him turning and make sure he had a parachute above his head. The next thing I know I wake up at 3,000 feet and thankfully underneath a fully inflated parachute. Reporter: Jones apparently had his doctor's clearance to jump but his skydiving days are now over. At least he's alive, he says, to thank the man that saved him. He's a hero, yup. He's a massive hero. Reporter: Clayton Sandell, ABC news, Denver.
