WATCH: Drama at 3,000 Feet When Parachutist Dangles in Air

VIDEO: The soldier was left dangling from a plane after his parachute got caught during a military exercise in Mexico.

A video posted to YouTube shows parachutists jumping out of a plane in quick succession before one of them becomes stuck in his lines and gets towed by the plane.

The jumpers are in military-type uniforms and a Mexican flag sticker is taped to the back of one helmet. The men appear to be practicing jumps out of the back of a plane from 3,000 feet.

At least seven jumpers successfully launch before one becomes stuck - his parachute chords becoming wrapped around something on the outside of the plane. The snag leaves him dangling.

The frightening scene ends when the man is pulled back into the plane.
