WILTSHIRE, England — James Lee was seconds into his skydive with several friends when he was hit in the back of the head and knocked out.

He told ABC News that the last member of his group to leave the plane was a bit unstable and his leg hit Lee.

“From then, I  have no real recollection of what happened on the skydive,” Lee, 25, said.

What happened next was truly amazing.

“Two of my friends that saw what happened came down, tried to see if I was responding to basic hand signals and there was no response,” Lee said.

Two fellow skydivers, while in free-fall at over 100 mph, were able to maneuver to Lee and pull his parachute cord.

He was wearing a helmet camera at the time that recorded the whole event.

As he slowly descended, Lee regained consciousness and was able to land safely.

He said he has no memory of what happened.
