5 years ago Danijel Zahtila was left paralyzed from the chest down after a motor cycle accident. Despite his severe disability, Danijel has recently made Croatian skydiving history…

This week at the Lučko Aeroclub in Zagreb, Danijel, with the help of the ‘Tandem Experti’ team, decided to jump out of a plane from 3,000 metres and skydive. The jump was to be the first of its kind in Croatia and the region.

To make the whole jump more interesting, Danijel decided to propose to his long-time girlfriend Iva during the jump. First Danijel had to convince her to jump as well for the surprise to work.

Needless to say Iva said yes.

Check out the moment in the video below.
