Parents are always on at their kids to call home more often but this man took it to the extreme when he gave his folks a ring – as he was about to jump out of a plane.
Roger Ryan, from Louth in Ireland, Skyped his parents as he sat in the aircraft, preparing himself for a parachute jump from 4,000 metres (13,000ft).
In the video, Roger, who was travelling in Sydney, says: “Ok, I’m going to jump out of an aeroplane now, so I’ll talk to you in a second.
Roger’s parents sit watching the screen, but they seem to be unaware of what is actually about to happen.
But as Roger leaps out of the aircraft, his mum and dad suddenly catch on, and let out a series of expletives as they watch their son plunge through the air.
His mum screams: “Oh no, he’s jumping out of an aeroplane,” before putting her hand over her mouth as she watches her son’s extreme jump.
His dad exclaims: “I thought he was in a bus!”
