A woman in Canada miraculously survived a fall of nearly a mile from an airplane after her parachute failed to open.
The woman suffered several fractures, including broken vertebrae, CBC reported. Trois-Rivières police said the injuries were not life-threatening, the network reported. The woman was an experienced skydiver, police said.
"It's a miracle," witness Dennis Demers told Radio-Canada on Wednesday. "I don't know how a person can survive a fall from an airplane like that."
Océane Duplessis told CBC she was preparing to board a plane to dive when she witnessed the incident.
