Nine skydivers and two pilots made a miraculous escape Saturday when two planes collided in midair during a routine jump in Wisconsin. NBC News licensed the stunning footage of the incident from the helmet cameras of five of the skydivers, showing the two planes hitting, and one bursting into a large fireball.

All nine skydivers escaped injury by leaping away from the wreck. One pilot had to flee the craft by using an emergency parachute, sustaining minor cuts, while the other was able to land his damaged plane safely. 

“The outcome for us was as good as it could be,” Mike Robinson, one of the divers, told NBC News.
