That's effed up. Why would you involve someone else by doing it in a tandem jump?Yeah no thanks. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law did it, and highly recommend it. But hell no.
This coulda been a local news tidbit years ago but someone that worked for a skydive company around here (I forget if it's NH or Maine - think it's right on the border) committed suicide jumping out of a plane.
Ok I'm back. Looked it up. He was a skydive instructor and killed himself while diving with a student (the student survived). Weird weird story.
Maine State police say a skydiving instructor intentionally loosened his harness in midair when he fell to his death in a September tandem jump in…www.nhpr.org
He was haulin ass for a while.....I wonder who was the first schmuck to exclaim, "Hey, let's all go up in an airplane and jump out! Doesn't that sound like fun?"
A neighbor's surveillance video captured an SUV window's reflection, showing the skydiver descending before making a hard landing.www.cbsnews.com
