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 »

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.

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.
