'See Ya!': Skydiver Makes Swinging Departure From Hot-Air Balloon Over California

An experienced skydiver made use of an on-board swing as he leaped from a hot-air balloon over Southern California on November 15.

Josh Neuman of Los Angeles recruited his friend and fellow filmmaker Spencer Shipman to capture the moment he swung from the balloon before free-falling toward the ground below.

The video stops short of showing Neuman pulling his parachute, but Shipman told Storyful that Neuman “landed safely and no one was hurt in the making of the video”.
