The risk might be higher you die in a car accident on your way to the DZ or work.
Nope, you're about 6 times more likely to get killed jumping than in a car wreck. Sorry.

Cycling, running, and swimming are all more dangerous than skydiving, but are less dangerous than being in an automobile, according to the data.
