@Carmium,

Most jumpers still do. Most of the footage in this video is pretty old. Some of it might actually be the reason most jumpers now have the drogue chute in hand.

Just examples of natural selection at work. Darwin was right.

I notice that unlike in the first base jumps I saw, in which the jumper held a small drogue chute to quickly pull out the main, current jumpers seem to have regular skydiving rigs. What`s the deal?

This is why you`ll never catch my ass doing this stuff. "Do something that has a high probability of killing me? SURE!"

I wimped out at 2:24, thank you for telling us her name. I don`t think they should show this stuff without some sort of "In Memoriam" - Fail compilation is one thing, but this...

"Used different gear and forgot where the cord was"

I`m sorry, what?

She, forgot... What?

You HAVE to be kidding.

It`s sad but at the same time it is difficult to have sympathy for people who tempt fate.

I am assuming there is more then one death in this video... the one at 1:46 was Jan Davis and she did die. Used different gear and forgot where the cord was. Also the camera man was her husband. Not a happy video this.
