A thrill-seeker has gone viral after he passed out in the middle of a tandem skydive.
Footage of the incident, which has been widely circulated on social media, shows the skydiving newbie losing consciousness mere seconds after jumping from the plane.
The instructor can be seen waking the man, who promptly begins to scream in shock as he plummets towards the ground.
The man's reaction has been jokingly compared to the world hurtling through 2020, a year that has been marred by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
During a tandem skydive, a student skydiver is connected to an instructor via a harness. The instructor guides their pupil through the jump, from exit to freefall, piloting the canopy and landing.
It's unclear where the skydive took place.
In August, Skydive Taupo - said to be one of the North Island's most popular tourist attractions - announced its impending closure due to the impacts of COVID-19.
The family-operated business will fly its pink aircraft, Pinky, for the final time over Great Lake Taupo in the coming weeks.
However, daredevils can still get their skydiving fix elsewhere, with a new venture recently launched in Christchurch. As of July, thrill-seekers can plunge from a helicopter over Sumner Beach.
