Full Story:Falling into a wooded area appears to have saved the woman after she plummeted around 5,000ft to earth.
The 30-year-old has not yet been named but witnesses described seeing her plunge more than 4,900ft (1,500m) to the ground and crashing into trees.
The incident happened on 10 August at a skydiving centre in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec.
Witness Denis Demers told Radio-Canada he saw the woman falling: "It's a miracle. I don't know how a person can survive a fall from an airplane like that."
He said it appeared that neither the main parachute nor the emergency back-up had opened.
