Wait, are those power lines?

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

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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