Fatality - Atlanta Skydiving Center - 16 April 2005 Can't Post

Brian McGuigan, a long time jumper of ASC, was killed when he double fronted his canopy into the ground on Saturday, April 16, 2005. McGuigan, who had over 1000 jumps initiated a 270 degree turn which was finished with double front risers to keep his speed. The jumper may have become fixated on a noodle which he hit; resulting in a late flare. People please realize that you do not have to have a perfect powerful swoop every jump. The key is walking away and learning. My friend put himself in a situation trying to push for more. Set limits and obey them. I am tired of seeing good people hurt or killed. To his family and friends, I love you all and hope that you find some happiness in knowing HE LOVED AND LIVED SKYDIVING.
