It was a close call for Bill Rancic yesterday! Giuliana’s husband jumped with the Army Golden Knights at the Chicago Air and Water show and narrowly missed tragedy. Two jumpers who went right after Bill were severely injured and hospitalized.
Giuliana shared the family photo above on Instagram. She was counting their lucky stars that Bill landed safely. “Our family just moments after @billrancic jumped with the Army Golden Knights today at the #chiairandwater show. Thankfully, he is good but the two soldiers after him are injured and hospitalized. Please send them and their families a prayer today Every prayer helps.”
In the freak accident, a A U.S. Army Golden Knight suffered a head injury after he hit an apartment building rooftop. He and a U.S. Navy Leap Frog were performing a maneuver where they come together in formation and then break apart, but the two collided. The Navy jumper broke his leg. Both men were taken to the hospital.
Have you ever been to the airshow? I’ve always wanted to, but it seems that a lot of scary things go down at it! I’ve been to other airshows with parachuters/jumpers but have never witnessed any of them getting hurt, thankfully!
