|On August 3, 1997 around 5 PM at the World
Freefall Convention in Quincy, Illinois, Michael B. Vederman, after a successful skydive,
got into a parachute collision with South African Andy Anderson's
body about 30 seconds before landing. Mike fell about 80 feet and struck the concrete
runway almost horizontal, face down.
Mike broke both femurs, both knees, left kneecap, right foot big toe, left elbow, right arm radius, mandible (lower jaw), maxilla (upper jaw), nose, orbits (eyeball sockets) and palate in mouth. Mike also lost 10 pints of blood, 19 teeth and 25 pounds of fat/muscle. He has various nerve damage.
