    Save some of your life and skip to 1:33. P.S. his friend could act about 100% more concerned.

    While at 150m he`s about at the minimum safe distance, but he`s obviously not a seasoned diver, and either packed his `chute wrong or just didn`t have the experience to know when to pull his backup.

    man, the guy was scared, his hands told the story there. But i`ve seen enough videos to tell that he was going about it the wrong way when he didn`t have his parachute in hand already for the jump. That little thingy he released 1/2 way down should have been in his hand when he first jumped. hope the guy is OK. frig.. poor guy that would have hurt.

    Buiadh all i can provide for you is the place "Konakovo" a russian district, the name of the jumper "Ivan" and the date of the event "march 8th 2012". I`ve searched on some english daily paper site but no luck, maybe you have better chance.

    The way the jumper was shaking and seemed terrified and the lack of any kind or reaction from the camera man, this was on purpose.

    freebee*.. Really??? on purpose??? So what you`re saying is he purposely packed his chute in such a manner so that it would fail to open and he would plunge nearly 500` to the ground... ya, that`s exactly what happened...

    Wait, are those power lines?

    Anyhoo, this guy was no experienced base jumper, he was shaking and delaying too much.
