A skydiver's worst fear is having the parachute fail to properly deploy, and if this occurs at 15,000 feet, death would seem certain. But Michael Holmes is living proof that humans are remarkably resilient, and that blind luck -- or miracles -- sometimes come into play. Holmes, whose frightening plunge was captured on video (see below), landed in dense vegetation and not only survived with only moderate injuries, he continues to skydive.
