Was that a pilot chute in tow, or did the pilot chute fabric explode?

I dont no the extent to Jasons injuries other than he lived. He was wearing full body armor. He was wrapped up in his bridle after being rolled over as the middle guy was holding on to his pilot chute. For mor details I suggest contacting TA as he was there!

Yeah, that was a dark moment in the lives of a lot of people I love. I owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the jumpers, medics, and doctors who helped me out when I really needed it. I've fully recovered, and have been back jumping since May of this year.

If I could boil this down to one technical lesson learned, it would be this... If you're considering doing a waterfall jump, understand that the exit timing and dynamics is of the *utmost* importance. Rehearse it on the ground. Then rehearse it in the air with nobody holding pilot chutes. Take your time, and do this till you get it repeatably right. The guy holding the PC's *must*never* find himself below the others.

I remember reading about this a long time back. I would say your luck bucket is about empty after that. Glad you made it through it all!

people need to read before commenting. might not ask questions that have such obvious answers. :) Who was it that landed right next to him? Good reaction time, you should be a base jumper!
