Watch: Skydiver Dangles from Plane 10,000 Feet Up

A skydiver in Peru had the shock of a lifetime when a mishap left him dangling from the plane while at 10,000 feet in the air. And a friend filmed then entire scene from the ground.

ABC News reported that the skydiver, Fernando Guava, was trying jump out of the plane when the activity went horribly wrong.

As an experienced skydiver with more than 1,000 jumps under his belt, an accident like this was one of the last things on his mind.

Guava's jumpsuit got stuck in the plane's exit step, leaving the Peruvian hanging in despair while the plane was in flight.

The skydiver was left hanging for nearly 30 minutes before he was able to cut himself free with a hook and knife. Once released, Guava was able to safely parachute to the ground.

Guava's friend, Maurice Mathey was on the ground and recorded his friend's dilemma from the ground before posting it on Vimeo.

Surprisingly, the man walked away from the scene unscathed, lest a cut on his hand.
