Skydiving involves jumping out of an airplane or other high-altitude structure and freefalling until a certain altitude is reached, after which the parachute is deployed to slow down the descent and allow for a safe landing. The freefall can be a thrilling experience, but it is also a very dangerous one if not done correctly.
In the case of baby skydiving, individuals attempt to take infants or young children with them on skydiving jumps, either by strapping them onto their bodies or by having them jump independently with their own parachutes. This practice is not only extremely dangerous but also unethical, as children are not capable of giving informed consent to such risky activities.
There are several reasons why baby skydiving is dangerous. First, infants and young children are not physically developed enough to handle the extreme conditions of skydiving. The high altitudes, cold temperatures, and rapid changes in air pressure can all cause harm to a child’s developing body. Additionally, the G-forces experienced during a freefall can put undue stress on a child’s fragile bones and organs, potentially causing serious injury or even death.
Furthermore, infants and young children do not have the cognitive ability to understand the risks involved in skydiving. They are not capable of making an informed decision about whether or not they want to participate in such a dangerous activity. By involving children in skydiving, individuals are putting their lives at risk without their consent or understanding.
