Canopy Entanglement Video Can't Post

https://vimeo.com/37991877 or (typo corrected) https://vimeo.com/37998866

This is a re-edit of an old video that I made of a horseshoe malfunction I had (the main caught on my camera helmet's ring sight; I cut it away, and you get to watch the helmet and canopy fall all the way to the ground). I edited it to cut the boring parts (uneventful free fall) and to add more intelligent commentary.

I cut away the main canopy out of sequence (i.e., I should have cut away the helmet), and that should have snapped my neck... But it didn't kill me (or if it did, the afterlife disappointingly similar to being alive), so I thought that you all might enjoy it - it's a bit of a warning to folks who are sloppy with their packing, are too willing to add cameras without thinking through the consequences, or who are complacent on their EPs.

Thanks to Dave Gerstein (Pilot Dave) for saving a copy of this video and making it available to me.

I revised it for my DZ's upcoming Safety Day.
