This is terrifying!!!
Skydiving student Christopher Jones was performing a 12,000 foot jump over Western Australia when he suddenly suffered a seizure mid-fall.

He was free-falling for a solid 30 seconds, unconscious, and was saved by instructor Sheldon McFarlane, who pulled the cord for Jones' parachute.
This was all part of an advanced skydiving program that Jones' doctor had cleared him for, which makes it even scarier!
McFarlane explained that an emergency device would have pulled the cord, even if the instructor hadn't reached Jones in time, so thank goodness for that!
This all happened last November, but Jones only now posted the footage, and it's mindblowing (below)!

Authorities are trying to hunt down the shark that took Ben Linden's life.
The 24 year old surfer was bit in half by a great white and when a jet skier tried to recover his body, the shark tried to make a meal out of the rescuer too before taking Linden's remains.
Linden's body hasn't been located at the moment.
Linden was the fifth person killed by a shark in less than a year off the Western Australia. The state has petitioned the federal government to end the protected status of the great white shark due to the slew of killings.
