Pregnant Skydiver Survives Face-First Free-Fall

This story has it all – video of the fall, the happy ending, and the surprise pregnancy.

SILOAM SPRINGS, Ark. — Shayna Richardson was making her first solo skydiving jump when she had trouble with her parachutes and, while falling at about 50 mph, hit face first in a parking lot.

Although badly hurt, she survived – and doctors treating her injuries discovered she was pregnant. Four surgeries and two months later, Richardson said she and the fetus are doing fine.

“Just this last week we went and saw the doctor and we’ve got arms, we’ve got legs. We’ve got a full face. The baby is moving around just fine. The heart rate looks good. So not only did God save me but he spared this baby,” she said.In fact there’s only one thing missing – sex…

Over at Skydiver Radio we find that the mom-to-be was into topless skydiving. Here’s the caption for their November 7th picture of the week
