A video of a daredevil skydiver swooping down and catching a shoe mid-air while filming the catch has emerged on YouTube.

SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO

The footage, which was posted by user jacamman97 in 2008 has only just surfaced and shows a group of skydivers seemingly getting into a spot of trouble when one bumps into a parachute and loses his shoe. The skydiving cameraman then comes to the rescue and swoops down to catch the flying trainer.

According to the Daily Mail, the parachutist makes several attempts to retrieve it and holds it up to the camera in triumph once he successfully manages to grab it.

The video was also posted on Reddit and one user commented: "That was way more exciting than I thought it'd be. The suspense, every time he narrowly missed the shoe."

Another says: "I love how the camera man just went from filming this to randomly starting a game of 'catch the flying shoe'."
