A skydiver came within minutes of his death when he had a seizure mid-air, and the entire incident was captured on another skydiver's helmet camera.

The skydiver, identified as Christopher, posted the incident on YouTube, calling it "possibly the scariest moment of his life."

As part of a skydive program, Christopher leaped from 12,000 feet in the air, but mid-freefall began having a seizure and lost consciousness. His instructor saw what happened and managed to pull his rip cord just in time.

Christopher regained consciousness at 3,000 feet and was able to land safely.
