Amazing story. Initially I thought you meant he freefell without a chute and survived, which would've broken
of falling 33,000 feet without a chute and surviving. Truth be told, once you
get above the altitude required to reach terminal velocity (about 1,500 feet according to Wikipedia), additional altitude is kind of irrelevant at
least as far as surviving the impact is concerned. Whether you fall from 2,000 feet or 20,000 feet you're going to hit the ground at the same speed.
The lack of pressure and breathable air the higher you go presents additional problems of course.
