Skydivers pay tribute
- ccostello3, CNN iReport producer
A group of skydivers, which included a few first responders, got together at Skydive San Marcos on the tenth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks to pay tribute to those who died and those who risked their lives on 9/11/2001. The morning began with talks about the events and statistics relating to the attacks. While the jumpers had fun skydiving, the true reason behind the event was widely known and respected, and the victims and heroes of 9/11/01 were, and are in everyone's thoughts and prayers. The formation required precision and stabilty and took four jumps to complete. This is the video of the final jump. For those who do not agree with our chosen tributary method please don't post negative comments. Memorial jumps are very common in the skydiving community. Each one of us watched with tearful eyes and broken hearts that day and will never forget.
