There’s a lot of pretty amazing video out there on the Internet, but this video is among the most amazing.

British skydiver Michael Holmes plummeted 12,000 feet, hitting the ground at 80 mph when his chutes failed to open properly.  The camera mounted on his helmet caught the entire event (including his breathless "goodbye" to the world just seconds before he hit.

His friend, a fellow skydiver, also filmed the event.

Michael survived.
