One of Wirths biggest passions is his skydiving. He enjoys his life to the fullest, and he has been skydiving for many years. In 2013 he had his arm torn off as a result of one of his skydiving adventures. His arm was torn on by a pole and his tissues were damage from his shoulder all the way down to his midforearm. Because of a bad crosswind he was not able to do the jump as he originally intended, but because of his history as a backcountry ranger he was able to successfully stop the bleeding from his arm.

Thankfully another skydiver also was able to come find him and the ambulance arrived and were able to take him safely to the hospital. Andy Wirth continues to do trail running, biking, and swimming. Wirth has made many friends with other individuals who have lost limbs as well. Andy Wirth is the perfect example of an individual who has not let any setback in life hold him back from following his passion.
