Friday Freakout: Skydiver Knocked Out By Nearly Fatal Collision, Saved By Vigil

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Knocked Out By Nearly Fa...

What was intended to be an angle jump turned into a zoo dive on exit and the group breaks apart quickly. One of the lagging jumpers tries to catch the leader, resulting in a nearly fatal collision that knocks Lucho out cold. Luckily his Vigil worked as advertised and saved his life. He has fully...

The purpose of horizontal separation at break-off is to avoid close calls like this. Something tells me there was one too many people shooting video on this tandem. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: AFF Gone Wrong - Parachute Snags On Helmet Camera

Friday Freakout: AFF Gone Wrong - Parachute Snags ...

Another example of how an unprotected camera mounted on a helmet can become a snag hazard. Kudos to Alan for holding on to the bridle — I think that slowed things down just enough for Paula to release the helmet (using the stock chin strap buckle) as the bag was coming out of the container!...

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Almost Entangles With Reserve Deployment On His Back

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Almost Entangles With Re...

Line twists aren’t much fun. Neither is a reserve deployment when you’re on your back — but it sure is great to have a parachute over your head as quickly as possible. Something tells me this could’ve been worse if he had a rear-facing GoPro mounted on the back of his helmet. Watch Video »

If there’s anything worse then having a nasty hard opening, line twists and a cutaway, it’s having your gear scattered across the sky and then bartering with the local South Africans to get your helmet and GoPro back. Fun times all around — or at least for the locals. Watch Video »

Considering ALL the options, including the DZ, the street wouldn’t be my first choice. Then again, what do I know. Watch Video »

This footage of two canopies colliding at low altitude (upper left corner of the screen) should serve as a reminder to watch your airspace and watch out for others — keep your head on a swivel. Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: CRAZY Parachute Collision Between...

This isn’t your typical tandem skydive — which is fun and safe. In this incident, the tandem passenger got more “close up video” than he paid for. The videographer doesn’t give much separation on opening and the tandem snivels right past him, causing a canopy collision that could have ended a lot worse than it... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Wild Wingsuit Flat Spin & Cutaway

Friday Freakout: Wild Wingsuit Flat Spin & Cutaway

As a new wingsuit pilot with only a few jumps under his belt, Nick experiences a nasty flat spin immediately after exit on this particular jump. He deploys his main on the verge of losing consciousness. He chops his main on the verge of losing bowel control. Nick says he’ll just stick to bowling from... Watch Video »

How long can you wait to cutaway a line over (or was it a tension knot?) before it fixes itself? Apparently this long. Pulling the toggles might have cleared this malfunction, but don’t wait so long to try toggles or follow emergency procedures. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Doesn’t Pull Parachute, Saved By CYPRES Fire!

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Doesn’t Pull Parachute...

No details were submitted with this video, but it gets spicy pretty quickly. This skydiver can’t seem to deploy his main canopy, resulting in a CYPRES save and a hard landing. By the looks of it, the pilot chute is still in the BOC after landing. What do you think happened? Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Safety Day Fail! Low Pull + CYPRES Fire For Student And Instructor

Friday Freakout: Safety Day Fail! Low Pull + CYPRE...

With less than 50 jumps, there’s nothing quite like getting “current” on Safety Day with a re-certification jump that involves a broken altimeter, a dirty low pull, a CYPRES fire and two parachutes to deal with at low altitude. On Safety Day!! Oh, the irony. ALTITUDE AWARENESS people… it’s pretty much your only job when... Watch Video »

A poorly stowed brake line catches on the ring sight of Jeff’s helmet. Unable to clear the entanglement, he cuts away his main canopy without attempting to cutaway his helmet first, which is still securely attached to his head. Luckily the helmet rips off — it should have broken his neck. Welcome to the less-than-9-lives... Watch Video »

I don’t mean to sound like Captain Obvious, but I’d say this was a really bad idea. This botched 2-way “shoulder stand” BASE jump turns into a 2-way parachute entanglement and a thud. Watch Video »

Campbell’s nasty double malfunction is the stuff skydivers’ nightmares are made of. It starts off with a pilot chute in tow due to a bridle wrap. He pulls his cutaway and then his reserve, but the main canopy comes out and wraps around his reserve lines due to the dual-sided RSL, which chokes off the... Watch Video »
