Watch Paraglider Pull Emergency Chute With One Second to Spare

You may’t lower it a lot nearer than this and dwell to inform about it.

If this video doesn’t get your coronary heart pounding, nothing will. Posted on YouTube on Monday, it exhibits a really, very shut name by an acro paraglider.

Based on the poster, it was an “acro paragliding trick in sturdy turbulence” gone flawed. Right here’s how the poster describes the incident, which they fortunately survived.

“Left break line acquired caught for a second to interrupt absolutely. The glider shot to the entrance and I fell inside.

Subsequent step in paragliding is to make use of your security parachute saved in your seat/harness. In aerobatics we even use 2 or 3 additional rescue techniques to save lots of ourselves from this sort of conditions. However falling into the paraglider and features made the rescue parachute openings very troublesome.

The falling pace elevated lots as a result of twisting wing. Final likelihood was to manually open the rescue package deal. Estimated time (earlier than affect) left about 1-2 seconds. This was not the day to die! Thanks!!!

In acro paragliding we face a number of tries and errors in studying the tips. With 2-3 rescue parachutes and a number of peak we will safely prepare this sort of sport. This event is kind of unfortunate and uncommon. Simply to bear in mind. Fly excessive, land secure 😉”
