    Death takes skydiver to court, and wins a multimillion dollar settlement.

    Re: Skydiver Cheats Death

    Alright so I had to watch this thing a few time and my question is why did he cut away on his main yes it was twisted but what I say was just a tether line cross over he had a full canopy and had some control over horizontal flight. I think he panick. One of the first things you are taught if you have a crossover is if you have full canopy fly it out of the twist if you can't then ride it.

    Also I would be asking some question on who and how his chute(s) were packed. The chance of both the main and reserve being foul is very hard to fathom.

    It didnt look that bad to me either. My first jump was a bad twist and all I had to do was pull apart the base and the chute filled. Took about five seconds max.
    Thank you
