Heart-stopping video footage shows the moment a paralyzed skydiver dices with death at 5,000 ft when the lines of his parachute become twisted - before he calmly untangles them.

Quadriplegic Jarrett Martin, who lost the use of both legs after a jump stunt accident seven years ago, caught the parachute problem on his helmet camera during a dive in Dubai.

The 25-year-old can be seen having to unravel his 'chute after the lines rotated around themselves four times in mid-air - an issue normally classed as an emergency which would see divers reach for their back-up.

But unbelievably Jarrett, who is paralyzed from the chest down, kept his cool to rescue the situation and safely untwists the lines, Daily Mail reported.
