A man skydiving for charity began plummeting to the ground at 150 mph as his parachute failed to open.

According to tabloid newspaper The Daily Mirror, the first parachute failed, which happens in one in every 4,000 jumps.

Dave Pagett safely landed after the back up was deployed, even saying that he would like to do it again.

The instructor strapped to Pagett’s back, was so calm. He casually told him: “Hang on dude, we’re going for another ride.”

He did the skydive for a charity he has chosen for his 50th birthday at Hinton Airfield, Northants.

“I think it was my destiny to do the jump,” Pagett said, a married I.T. expert but no children yet.

Meanwhile, a woman has fulfilled her longtime dream to go skydiving for the first time at the age of 102.

According to United Press International, Vivian “Millie” Bailey is a World War II veteran.

Producers of the American Heroes Channel’s Honor Flight Heroes asked her if she wanted to do something off her bucket list.

Millie then said she had been thinking about doing skydiving, inspired by former President George H.W. Bush.
