A skydiver miraculously survived after plummeting 3,000 feet to the ground when her parachute became tangled, The Sun reported Tuesday.

Lareece Butler escaped with bruises, a broken leg and a concussion after slamming into the ground in South Africa.

The mom-of-one leaped from a plane with a parachute that opened automatically, but it suffered problems within seconds of exiting the aircraft.

Her boyfriend watched from the ground in horror as she spiraled downward before crashing into a field on Saturday.

Skydive manager Joos Vos said the novice jumper was very lucky to be alive.
