Miraculous video from the helmet of a skydive master, who saves a fellow jumper mid-air.

Over Perth Australia, Christopher Jones and Sheldon McFarlane jumped from the plane, CNN reports. Just seconds into the dive, Jones began having a seizure, and McFarlane maneuvers himself into a position to pull Jones' ripcord as the two freefall back toward the earth.

Watch the miraculous video, shot from McFarlane's helmet cam, above. It has more than 5 million views as of Monday afternoon.

In the video description, Jones says he was unconscious for about 30 seconds.

Said McFarlane, to NBC News: "I am no hero."
