A Greenpeace protester’s life flashed before their very eyes after a stunt nearly went wrong ahead of France’s Euro 2020 clash with Germany in Munich. The daring parachuter intended to land on the turf ahead of kick-off to get some time in the limelight but the swoop very nearly ended in disaster.
In footage captured by German broadcaster Max Merrill, the parachuter appeared to get caught in the stadium’s spider cam.
Yet thankfully, the individual managed to break free but the situation only escalated.
The collision with spider cam then set the parachuter swinging towards the stands but a late change of direction saw them narrowly miss the press box and a collection of supporters.
