Who made the world's first parachute jump?
Sebastien Lenormand is credited
with the invention of the parachute in 1783 although Leonardo Da Vinci as well
as others sketched parachutes centuries earlier.
The world's first documented parachute jump was mad by
Andre-Jacques Garnerin on October 22 1797 from a hot air balloon from 8,000 feet
over Monceau Park in Paris.
Since harnesses were not invented until 1887
Andre-Jacques Garnerin was in a basket hooked to the parachute and since vents
were not used in the chute the basket swung around quite violently making poor
Andre-Jacques, not only the first person to make a parachute jump, but also sick
