Sorry, but there is no infomation of the reason of the fatality in this article.
They only write the soldier had more than 2000 jumps and was with other german special forces for training in Tuscon.

I am sure a statement will be made when possible.

I suggest that folks wait until a concise and factual account of events is released.
Specualtion and hearsay does no one any good. I stand by my earlier post.

I was at the dropzone the 4/16 - 4/18. A witness to it said that he was coming in for a landing and his slider which he had under his chin came up into his face while he was about to land and he reached up with his hand and pulled it out but he had toggles in his hands controlling his canopy, so he had a low turn. My condolences to the family.
