This is the moment a skydiver solved the puzzle of a Rubik’s pyramid during a 13,000ft free fall from an airplane in Thailand.

Chinmay Prabhu, 23, was trying to complete the Pyraminx, a tetrahedral version of the Rubik’s Cube, in 30 seconds during the April 14 skydive in Sri Racha, Chonburi.

The video shows Chinmay, who is from Mumbai, solving the puzzle in 24.22 seconds as he freefalls attached to an experienced skydiver.

He jumps out of the plane in tandem, but struggles to retrieve Rubik’s Pyramid from the other skydiver.

Wind resistance makes it difficult for Chinmay to grasp the puzzle, but once he does, he completes the pyramid in record time.

As the parachutist he is attached to pulls the parachute, Chinmay smiles at the camera and proudly shows off the single-colored sides.

According to the Guinness World Records, he now holds the record for the fastest time to solve a spinning puzzle tetrahedron in free fall.

Chinmay said: “After having two Guinness World Records titles to my name, one for solving Pyraminx puzzles underwater and on land while riding a bike – the next idea that immediately came to mind was why not the sky?

‘After sleepless nights, today I finally went skydiving in Thailand and solved a Pyraminx puzzle in 24 seconds in freefall.

‘I had no experience [of skydiving] but had watched a lot of skydiving videos on the internet. I had it on my to-do list for a long time.
