Fatality - Dubai - 17 May 2013 Can't Post

Reports are coming out that a highly experienced skydiver was fatally injured on a jump in Dubai. The instructor was jumping a cross braced canopy and happened to get caught in turbulent air that lead to the collapse of his canopy. The jumper was doing a 90 degree approach to landing and it seems he flew through a dust devil at around 300 feet, when it was determined his main was not going to re-inflate he tried to pull his reserve also to get more nylon above his head to help. He landed under a partially collapsed main canopy. He was alert on the ground and speaking to first responders but he passed away from his injuries a short time later.









One thing of note on this is that the jumper did not have his family listed as a contact and it seems it took quite a while to track someone down that was able to get in touch his his family to inform them about the situation. Please list the correct person on the waivers and make sure that if you want multiple people contacted you leave that information as well. Putting things like "A doctor" as a contact does not help the situation if you are seriously injured and the DZ needs to contact the family. Also consider putting someone other than your spouse on the form if that person might be on the same plane as you in the case of a plane crash.
