Texas Skydivers Filmed Eat Pizza While Free Falling 14,000 Feet
Skydiving can be scary enough but this group of skydivers was able to multitask while they plummeted 14,000 feet. Adrenaline junkies for years have touted their love for free-falling from the sky, and it's easy to see why. According to the United States Parachute Association, about 350,000 people complete more than 3 million jumps every year. This number includes novice jumpers and seasoned athletes all throwing themselves out of a plane to take in the breathtaking panoramic beauty of the skyline.
I've never skydived before so it's hard for me to think that I would be able to do anything during a jump then try to stay calm and remember to breathe. For seasoned skydivers and instructors, it's just another day at the office. So it's not surprising to see this group of professionals trying out something new, like grabbing a bite to eat during their jump.
According to the Daily Mail, Lori Patalocco and three other skydivers were up 14,000 feet in the air when they pulled out a box of Margherita pizza. Two of the jumpers were holding the box between them and a third pulled out a piece of pizza and fed it to another skydiver. The other skydivers can be seen smiling as they successfully eat the pizza thousands of feet in the air.
