VIDEO: Skydivers capture on camera two planes colliding above Wisconsin

By Jameson Fleming | CBSSports.com Staff

A routine jump for two pilots and nine skydivers turned into a free fall at 12,000 feet to save their own lives on Saturday after two planes collided midair during a stunt in Wisconsin.

After the collision, all nine skydivers were able to flee their planes and safely land on the ground. In the process, they avoided debris from the planes which also fell at up to 125 miles per hour.

One pilot escaped using his emergency parachute while the other amazingly landed his plane despite damage to the propeller and the wing.

The incident is still under investigation by the FAA.
