Knowing what is coming in this less-than-one-minute video makes the seconds leading up to the paratrooper's accidental chute deployment, which then sucks him out of a plane, pretty tense.

MSN out of New Zealand reported that the jumpmaster was crouched down on what is thought to be a C-130 Hercules, looking for a drop zone. This is when his rip cord for his reserve parachute deployed sucking the U.S. soldier from the plane.

A representative from the 5th Special Forces Group told MSN the paratrooper landed 50 km away from the preferred landing site and was not injured.

Th representative also said the video was recent but couldn't confirm from exactly when.

Watch the footage and see if you don't get a bit anxious knowing he's about to be sucked from the plane:
