Re: [stratostar] Skydiver’s Near-Death Experience Points To Lax Industry Oversight

In reply to:
You may not like the reporting style but the fact of the matter is they told the cold hard truth about our industry and it's lack of oversight.

Maybe so, but a lack of oversight doesn't appear to have caused this accident.

It appears to have been caused by a DGIT who snuck a go pro onto the load, when he was still trying to figure out what the hell he was doing.

Premature deployments happen. Sometimes you end up with a good canopy, other times it evolves into a ball of shit!

That is why we teach gear checks and emergency procedures.
