Sometimes our hobbies can be so exiting they are almost addictive. This is exactly how Andy Wirth was, after he was introduced to skydiving. This begun when he moved to Squaw Valley in 2010. Here he befriended J.T Holmes who he went skiing with. J.T introduced him to athlete Sean McCormick who helped him get certified for sky diving in Perris, California. On October 13th however things did not go as planned.
In their About.me page, Andy Wirth, JT and some friends had gone to Davis, California to jump on the 12th. The next day the Davis drop zone was shut down due to winds. They then moved up to Lodi and despite the wind they still decided to go ahead and jump (https://www.crunchbase.com/person/andy-wirth#/entity). A series of events led him to land in a vineyard. However a wind pushed him right causing him to collide with a pole which tore off his right arm. After 15 minutes, Amanda, another diver heard his cries and after 30 minutes a helicopter was on the scene.
Through all this he kept humming Pearl Jams “just breathe” to keep him from going into shock.
