Robert Cook, a 22-year-old skydiving instructor, was on a plane with 21-year-old Kimberley Dear. She was about to make her first ever skydive, and he was her instructor.
But soon after the plane had taken off, the engine failed. The airplane started plummeting towards the ground at a rapid speed.
Robert calmly told Kimberley to sit on his lap. He then hooked her harness up to his and embraced her to take the brunt of the impact onto himself. He stayed incredibly calm and composed and told Kimberley exactly what she needed to do and kept her calm as well. He then turned his body so that he was underneath her. When the plane hit the ground, his body softened the blow for her.
Robert died after hitting the ground. But thanks to his heroic actions, Kimberley survived. He had given up his own life to save a complete stranger.
