Episode: Hard Lives, Easy Deaths
How it unfolded
Shayna Richardson was going for her first skydive, that almost turned intro the last day of her life. After opening the parachute, she begins to spin uncontrollably and with the brake lines not working, she falls towards the ground without being able to do anything. After a loud bang after hitting the ground, it looked like she was dead, but surprisingly she survived it. She only suffered bleeding eyes, ears, nose and losing some teeth. "Yes these things can happen, someone gets involved into an accident that is usually impossible to survive and in the end does survive it, like Shayna Richardson".
