Hanging on the PC defies explanation. How or why the jumper could have thought this was a good idea in any respect is beyond me. I'm willing to accept that he was unaware that his container was opened when he pulled the PC, but that still leaves he problem of the bridle blowing around in the wind the whole time he's holding the PC.
I think there is a very good chance that he didn't realize he was holding on to the PC. Thick enough gloves, hackey between fingers... it would be easy to think you threw it when you're still holding it.
ETA: Picture attached.
