  • Description

    Full title reads: "Atlantic City. Daredevil diver makes spectacular leap from autogyro into sea."

    Atlantic City, New Jersey, United States of America (USA).

    A daredevil parachutist explains from the cockpit that he is going to attempt to parachute from an autogyro.

    Shots of the autogyro as it takes off.

    Shots as the parachute opens after he has leapt from the aircraft. As he gets closer to the ground the parachute starts to fold up and the jumper falls to ground on the beach rather than in the sea as planned. Crowds of people run across the beach to his aid.

    Shots as he attempts it again. The 'chute opens as he leaves the autogyro. He lands safely in the sea and a boat speeds out to pick him up.
