An Irish guy Skyped his parents moments before doing a skydive

He was in the plane when he made the call.

IT’S IMPORTANT TO keep in touch with your parents while you’re travelling the globe. Irish lad Roger Ryan knows that.

He was staying in a hostel in Sydney, Australia when he was approached by travel website Hostelworld to do a 14,000 foot skydive.

Ryan said yes, and decided to Skype his parents to let them know… moments before he jumped out of the plane.



Some NSFW language – they are watching their beloved child jump out of a plane, after all.

Maybe give them a bit more warning the next time you attempt a daring stunt before their eyes, yeah Roger?
