    21-year-old Shayna Richardson of Joplin, Missouri, was skydiving. . . while two-weeks pregnant. . . and BOTH of her parachutes malfunctioned. She ended up slamming FACE-FIRST into an asphalt PARKING LOT. . . at 50 MILES-AN-HOUR!!! And she SURVIVED!!! Shayna broke her pelvis in two places, broke one leg, lost six teeth and now has 15 steel plates in her FACE. But she's recovering. . . and her fetus is TOTALLY FINE!

    for the record apparently she didn;t know she was pregnant till after the accident...

    should be a video here but i can't get it to load...

    i saw the video, the chute opened up but then sent her into a spin so she wasnt in freefall when she hit the ground

    the news people make it sound like she hit the ground from a freefall and survived

    I saw the vid on the news the other day. It didn't show when she hit the ground though. On the news they said that the first chute attempt didn't open at all, and the backup chute was the one that kinda deployed. But DAMN, that sucks. And that's gonna be a little miracle baby. I can see it now, "Hey little Johnny, when I was pregnant with you, I went skydiving."
    "Oh wow, mommy, that's gnarly."
    "Yeah, my parachutes didn't work properly, and I slammed face first into a parking lot."
    "Damn mommy, you got FUCKED up. You know, I can tell by your face now that you mention it."

    in the vid you see the first chute did open. she started spinning but didnt know why so she CUT her chute off.
    the second chute also opened, just never fully deployed.

    Did the news guy say '...spinned out of control" ?


    shouldn't it be 'spun' ?

    so, your saying the camera went from the girl to a second camera man??

    well even the reporter says exactly what i just typed lol.

    she cut her first chute, then you see it falling to the ground, her second chute opened, but not fully.

    yeah i watched it again, its the same video, but listen to the reporter. he says she cut her first chute then opened the emergency chute. thens he comes in and say thats what they call "the garuanteed open" or some shit.

    i guess when she was out of view and the camera guyw as messing with his chute is when she cut her first one.
    then when he goes back to her and shes spinning thats her emergency one
