Michelina Lewandowska is a survivor if we've ever heard of one!

She met Marcin Kasprzak six years ago and the two fell in love. They had a child together (now 3) and moved to England together.

Video Footage Documents Man Surviving Skydiving Accident

Filed under: InspirationSad SadYouTubeInjury

OMG!

Words can not express how terribly we feel for this skydiver who unknowingly filmed the accident which started his life as a quadriplegic.

During a routine jump amongst experienced friends, the man filming (identified as Tim in the footage) collides with a friend at 2,500 feet in the sky and tangles his parachute.

Unable to properly maneuver the mangled "ball of nylon", Tim plummets to the ground and breaks his pelvis, back and neck as he lands in a cornfield.

He not only details his traumatic experience on his YouTube page, but shares it took him four-and-a-half years to watch the harrowing footage, writing:

"As I lay waiting for help, spinal shock begins to set in paralyzing my diaphragm and breathing on my own becomes impossible. Rescue breathing is performed as I lose consciousness. Paramedics arrive and I'm med-flighted to UW Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin where I awake days later after surgery and begin life as a quadriplegic. It's taken me four and a half years to be able to watch this video."

The actual impact is (thankfully) cut from the video, but what remains is an inspirational display of courage.

His friends come to his aid and Tim (even after suffering life-threatening injuries) calmly instructs them how to properly care for him to ensure his survival until paramedics arrive.

Watch the jaw-dropping video above to see a man bravely face the reality of his awful situation as he fights for his life.

Tim, if you're reading this, you are our hero!
